To the Editor:

The Friends of the Akron-Summit County Public Library, Portage Lakes Branch would like to thank the community for supporting its Spring Book Sale in April. It was an successful event that will help our local library. Our volunteers put in many hours sorting books, setting up, conducting, and cleaning up after the sale. Students from Manchester High School helped bring out and put our boxes of books away and Acme #14 provided the bags for our bag sale. Our next book sale will be Saturday, October 14; we are currently taking book donations to restock our supply.  We also have a Friends of the Library book cart in the entrance to the library where patrons can pick up books anytime and leave whatever monetary donation they feel is appropriate. We are always looking for new Friends of the Library members; applications are at the library. Our Portage Lakes branch library is a gem and we appreciate everyone who patronizes it.

Yours truly,
Margo Erme
