Letters to the Editor

Thanks for another great book sale

Editor:

Due to the generosity of area readers, the Friends of the Summit County Libraries (FOL) raised over $5,700 at their annual Used Book Sale on Memorial Day weekend. This money will be used to purchase additional materials for the library as well as help fund programs like the recent Asian Occasion, Kamas and Coalville Teen Game Night, Bookmobile Art Prize and the upcoming Apa Sherpa Talk.

Thank you to all those Friends who helped with publicity, set-up, the sale and take-down. This sale is a success because of your hard work. A special THANK YOU to Deputy Ewell and his team who provided the muscle power we needed.

Remember, books are always available for sale in the library branches.

Keep on reading!

Destruction was constructive

Editor:

At noon on May 21, AmeriCorps volunteers from the National Ability Center arrived at Recycle Utah on Woodbine Way with destruction on their minds. Wielding screwdrivers, hammers, utility knives, scissors, pry bars, pliers and a sledgehammer, they proceeded to demolish 34 discarded car seats in 3 hours. separating the hard plastic from the metal and non-recyclable fabric, a sizeable amount of recyclable materials were mined from the car seats and the county landfill was spared unwanted additions. It was a tough job but all of the participants enjoyed themselves as they found creative new ways to use tools! Many thanks to Brian, Kristin, Rebekah, Garrett, Molly, and Tracy for volunteering, and thanks to Recycle Utah volunteer coordinator Britte Kirsch for organizing the project.
