Thanks to the community of Orcas Island, the annual Summer Library Fair (after one year’s hiatus) was a resounding success! Book sales from last Saturday’s Library Fair netted the Friends of the Orcas Island Library for just over $8,200. These funds will be used for annual grants to the Orcas Island Library to cover endeavors like the summer reading program; elementary school book club; the young adult book club, and various community-based library programs, among others.
Our thanks go to all you book buyers and volunteers who, once again, made the Library Fair a success. In particular, we greatly appreciate the help of Island Hardware, Orcas Freight and the Orcas High School basketball teams coached by Ed Lago and Sada Ashcraft.
