Market Bags for Sale During the Friends of the Library Book Sale

This year's Friends of the Library book sale featured hand knit and crochet bags made by our Mint Hill Stitch In ladies.

Fifteen bags sold for a total of $120.00. A special thanks to all the ladies who contributed by donating their creations.

The Friends collected $3,373.83 during this book sale that drew people from surrounding counties. The sale continued the following two weeks with borrowers naming the price of the books sold. Some very generous borrowers offered more than what our books normally sell for.

The bags were cleverly displayed on the bulletin's wall

Shelia's original Cookie Monster and Elmo bags brought smiles and were among the sold.
