---- — Thanks for making book sale a success

The Friends of the Ottumwa Public Library would like to thank the community for coming out and supporting our joint book sale with the Bridge View Center and Ottumwa Area Convention Visitors Bureau in May. It was again a success, and we appreciate all who gave to the cause, both with donated books and those who purchased the materials.

We were able to raise $2,437.24 for the Friends organization, and with that money we are able to support the services at the Ottumwa Public Library. We use it to purchase materials as well as boost the programming available.

This was the second year of what we hope to be an annual book sale. In two years we have been able to raise a total of $6,189.68 for the Friends of the Library. We are grateful to the Bridge View Center Inc. and the Ottumwa Area CVB for all of the hours of planning and hard work that went into the sale. We could not have done this on our own, and we enjoy partnering with the great folks in both organizations.
