Friends of the 
Bellingham Public Library

Dear Friends:

A hearty and sincere thank you to all of the Friends of the Bellingham Public Library for contributing to the success of our Spring Book Sale on May 15th and 16th.   It could not have happened without your help and support.

I especially want to thank Bernadette Rivard, our amazing library director, for her guidance, resourcefulness, e-mails, inspiration and unlimited energy – always in support of the Friends.

Thank you too, for the help and support of our library’s experienced and knowledgeable staff, always willing to lend a helping hand.

To our “worker bees”, the Friends members and volunteers who donated their time, energy and enthusiasm from Wednesday through Saturday. Thank you for being there to set up, stock and maintain the book tables, to act as cashiers, sell raffle tickets and book bags, to register new and returning Friends memberships and assist in the daunting task of clean-up.

Jim Maher, our library custodian, worked behind the scenes to store the many packed boxes of books in preparation for the sale and move them again into the community room at sale time. Thank you, Jim.

We may be small in number, but what a powerfully energetic team we are!

I feel very fortunate and pleased to be involved with the Friends in supporting our wonderful town library.

I encourage active Friends members to attend our monthly meetings and bring a new Friend with you; to share your talents, your ideas, and your inspiration in planning future fundraising events and Friends programs.

Warm wishes to you and your families for a restful, relaxing and enjoyable summer.


Jane Vichi, President
