We also have SCFOL coffee mugs ($5), and gold ornaments ($10) depicting the new downtown library. Ask about them.
We can always use volunteers to help sort books during the month, to stock the tables before and during the book sales, and to put away the unsold ones following the sales. These activities require about 200 volunteer hours per month. If you would like to help, please leave a note for Debbie Kues or Orlie Baird at the library.
Its never too late to join a book club. Our library manager has started a Librarian’s Book Club at the San Carlos Library. It will meet at 12:30 pm on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Members will choose the books to be read. Titles are listed under BOOK CLUB TITLES on this website. Extra copies of the current month’s selection are available at the check-out desk.
