LUDLOW - The Book Nook raised nearly a $1,000 in donations and
books for local libraries from its second annual Summer READing
Book Fair. The focus of the event was to provide additional support
for the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library, Ludlow's Fletcher
Memorial Library and the Mt. Holly Town Library. These local
libraries are not just places to find a great book to read, but key
public spaces in our communities.
The book fair took place at The Book Nook store located at 136
Main Street and ran from June 14-23. Library supporters of local
libraries were able to buy books for themselves of which 20% of the
sale went to the library of their choice or they could buy books
off a wish list for each library. This year's total nearly doubled
last year's donations and given its success, it will be happening
again next year.
The Book Nook would like to thank all the book buyers who
stopped in the store to support their local libraries. We would
also like to thank our local librarians for all the great work they
do for our communities - Kata Welch of Cavendish Fletcher
Community Library, Jill Tofferi, Ginger Palmer
and Lindsay Grattan of Fletcher Memorial Library and
Lynne Herbst of Mt Holly Town Library.
Each of these libraries also hold book sales throughout the
