More than a dozen Rotarians and friends turned up Oct 2 for the 'big book pick up' organized by Ian Thompson and literally thousands of books were transported by eager volunteers.
The books, from an estate sale, will be used at various locations on the upcoming Rotary Garage Sale Trail on October 16. Everything from art, history, geography, arts and crafts to fiction and non-fiction was in the mix.  The donation of books will be a treasure trove for anyone who likes books and reading.
The lady who passed was a librarian and so, the extensive collection of literature from coffee table books to hardcover and paperbacks, as well as bound collections, is sure to be a gold mine for readers, scholars and collectors.
Eight SUVs, trucks and vans were used to move the scores of boxes and everything was removed from the home in under an hour.  Hats off to the crew who stepped up and helped pave the way for a great Garage Sale Trail event.
