Book Sale Receipts Donated to Public Library Disaster Relief Fund

We’re pleased to report that the recent Davis Family Library book sale brought in $2,732 and that amount has been donated to the Vermont Public Library Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund to help libraries that were impacted by the floods following Tropical Storm Irene.  The funds will be used for repairs, mold abatement, clean-up and replacement of books, furniture and computers. Thanks to Jess Isler and Carrie Macfarlane for suggesting that we use the proceeds from the sale to support the fund.  Thanks also to our College Cashier and the folks in Accounting for helping us coordinate the donation.

Library Book Sale

Tuesday, November 15th  – Sunday, November 20th ,  

Davis Family Library, 110 Storrs Ave., open at 9:00 AM on first day, continuing during regular library open hours thereafter.

The Davis Family Library will offer withdrawn and duplicate copies of books, music scores, and other media for sale at great prices.   Choose from a wide variety of items for scholarly work or recreational reading, listening, and viewing.  Proceeds from this year’s sale will be donated to the Vermont Public Library Foundation’s Emergency Relief Fund, assisting libraries that were impacted by the recent floods.

(Because the low price asked for materials is in part a service to the college community, anyone purchasing items on the first day of the sale will be required to show a Middlebury College ID.  Book dealers are not welcome to purchase items for resale on Tuesday, Nov. 15th).
