We've enlarged and updated our Used Book
Nook at Alyssa's Antique Depot at 4586 Chumuckla Highway.
Come in, sit a bit, and find some great books!
Used Books are available here at great
prices! Your purchase makes it possible for the Friends
to purchase new books for the library. And Alyssa's makes
the booth space gratis to the Friends. Be sure to thank
them for providing this community service!
The Friends' Annual
Book Sale was a great success! We made about $3000, which puts
us one quarter of the way toward
our goal! We also registered or renewed memberships for 77+ library
supporters! Many thanks to the hard working members who put on
this successful book sale, and to all of you who visited!
The Friends Board set next year's goal for library
donations at $12,000. During the previous fiscal year, the Pace
Friends donated $11648 in purchases for the library. This money
comes from memberships, Kay Brown Fundraiser, cash donations; and
the Book Sales at Alyssa's, the library, and the Annual Book Sale.
