Thanks from the Friends of the Del Webb Library Used Book Room for supporting our holiday book sale Dec. 4.
Our sale total for books, calendars and bookmarks was $543, which easily surpassed our December 2009 sale total of $300.
Also a tremendous thanks to those of you who became generous members in 2010, supported us with your book donations and, of course, those of you who made regular purchases.
2010 was an amazing year for our group, having received the WSOC grand prize in its Nine Who Care awards, growing our daily sales to almost double, and thus enabling us to support the library in its growth.
We passed a huge milestone at the end of last year in having given, since our official opening in July 2009, a total of more than $10,000 back to the library to fund book purchases and programs.
We encourage you as individuals, groups, businesses or foundations this year to visit our room, which is open during regular library hours, and/or to make a 100 percent tax-deductible charitable donation to our nonprofit Friends of the Del Webb Library Used Book Room to support the love of reading in our community. 
Thank you all. I hope you had a joyous holiday season and will have a bountiful 2011.
