Dear Editor,
The success of the Friends of the Great Bend Public Library book sale is due to a long list of volunteers: the Friends of the Library who sort books, Great Bend Public Library and Central Kansas Library System staff who helped set up the books, and especially the volunteers from CPI who moved more boxes than ever from storage to the book sale room. We are grateful to Fred and Russell at the library and the Barton County College Basketball team for moving the boxes of books after the sale.
We appreciate the help from the Great Bend High School volunteers, City Workers, Sunflower Diversified, Great Bend Tribune and our radio stations. This project takes many people to be a success, and we thank all of the people who donated books to the library all year and also for everyone attending this year’s sale.
Mary Ann June
