The Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library are thrilled to report that its November book sale was a great success. The sale, which took place the first week of November, was the fourth of the Friends regular quarterly sales.
According to treasurer Linda Wallace, the sale brought in almost $1,700. This includes almost $500 from silent auctions held during the sale itself and at Plumas Bank during two weeks in October.
“We couldn’t conduct these successful sales without the help of a dedicated core of volunteers,” said Friends Vice-President Bev McColm. “We want to thank them and also thank our great community of book lovers who shop with us.”
The Friends next event will be another silent auction held at Plumas Bank from Friday, Dec. 13 through Saturday, Dec. 21.
Silent auctions include books of higher value than the regular offerings. “The December auction will feature some wonderful holiday-themed items as well as several like-new books perfect for gift-giving,” said auction organizer Stephanie Leaf. “We’re extremely grateful to Plumas Bank for the chance to present these special items to the community,” she added.
The Friends is a membership organization, with annual memberships costing $10, and lifetime memberships costing $100.
“The first day of each sale is open to members only, so the advantage of membership is that you get first pick of all our great offerings,” said Friends President Jimmie Oneal. Oneal also pointed out that a Friends membership makes a great Christmas gift.
