Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 20, 2015 11A Auction raises $1,778 The most recent book sale at the Quincy branch of the Plumas County Library, held i May 7, 8 and 9, was a huge success, netting the Friends group $1,778.00. "We want to thank the community for its continued support of the Quincy branch of the Plumas County Library," said Diann Jewett, : Secretary and treasurer of the Quincy Friends of the PIumas i County Library. "Our volunteers were just amazing, helping with the sale from set up to breakdown." New to the book sale was a : silent auction for special : books and it was well : received. It will take place again at the next sale. i Donations of gently used :books, as well as donated : book purchases and new and i renewed memberships, all contribute to making the : efforts of the Friends of the Library a success. "We use the proceeds from the book sales for library enhancements. Many projects are ongoing; look for new enhancements in the upcoming months," she said. Jewett also reminded library patrons that they can order books from Zip Books, a grant-funded program through the California State Library. If there is a book or audio book that is not available at the library it can be ordered through this grant. "Readers can ask the library staff about this wonderful free service," she said. There is a simple request form that needs to be completed and then the book is ordered and sent directly to the patron's address. When the patron is finished reading the book, he or she returns it to the library, where it might be added to the collection, or the patron can choose to purchase it. This is a free service with no cost to the patrons. Jewett said the current grant runs through June 2016. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library can get an application at the library. Gently used books can be donated at the front desk of the library during regular business hours or by calling Jewett at 283-3873 to arrange a donation pickup. The next sale will be held Aug. 6, 7 and 8. Senior Expo set for Tuesday 'As the school year draws to a close, Quincy High School is hosting events and inviting the public to attend.
