Last Sunday the library participated in the Simcha Sunday celebration, organized by the Jewish Community Center of Sonoma County at the Santa Rosa Veterans Hall. Just like in past years we were selling books donated to us and weeded/removed from the library’s collection. We sold books that would have filled more than three boxes. Our income for the day was $95. I rounded the amount up with $5 from the money we collected from late charges. This way I could support the CBA’s general fund with $100, a nice, round amount. In past years the income from the booksales went towards the library’s fund, but this year the general fund needs it more.
If you visited Simcha Sunday you saw that the library’s table was between two other CBA tables: the gift shop’s and one shared between USY (including its pop-corn machine. The Nursery, the religious school and other CBA related materials. We were all tight a little bit, so when P’nina managed to come (after the morning’s religious school ended) it was a bit of a challenge to make space for the beautiful purses and bags she designed. But we did it ,at the end of the Library table, and she managed to make some sales. I would like to thank her for offering 50% of the proceeds to CBA. I wish I could have provided more space for her display.
I would like to thank Susan Goldstein who helped at the table from the the time we opened till we closed. Without her help I may not have been able to go and look around myself. I would also like to thank Dina, who helped in the first two hours. Sorry that I didn’t catch your last name, but I do remember that your child goes to the Nursery. I know you came to help CBA on behalf of the nursery, although you ended helping with the booksales. Thank you.
Most of all I would like thank everyone who purchased a book or more from us at Simcha Sunday. I hope you will find them engaging and interesting. Your support of CBA is much appreciated.
