Thanks to everyone at the San Juan Branch of the American Association of University Women.  We were thrilled to have several of their members with us this past Saturday, August 24.  They were here to inaugurate their donation of a new collection of books created with our young readers in mind.  Entitled “Stand-up Women!,” the 35 stories from this outstanding collection will appeal to every reader.  Come in and select a story that will impact your life, just as these women’s work, spirit and dedication have impacted our world.  Here is a link to our FB post of their visit.

On this Saturday we also held our “Back to School Book Sale.” We broke a fundraising record!
Total funds raised were $744.65–$455 in memberships and $287.65 in book sales (which were 50% off–ie., books were 50 cents and $1 that day!).  WOW  and THANK YOU!

Closings:  We will be closed tomorrow, August 28.  May we all be safe during the passing of Tropical Storm Dorian!

We will also be closed on Monday, September 2 in observation of Labor Day.

New Class Reminder:  Our September art workshop for young adults and adults  “Hand-made Books”  starts Thursday, September 5.
