October Book Sale Beats Records
Thank you to everyone who participated in our book sale this month. We were able to raise over $1,000 on Saturday, October 16. We are as happy to have book sales back as you are and we hope to have another large sale in the Spring. Books are still available for sale in the lobby. This week only you can get a bag of books for $3. When you are looking to clean off your shelves please think of us. Your donations of gently used books are what make our sales a success. Please no donations of encyclopedias, old text books, or damaged books.
Lots of Free Stuff Books, e-books, craft kits, storytime, tutoring, literacy assistance, digital and in-person programs - they're all available at your local library for free. Stop in and talk to the staff or visit www.sbclib.org for the latest.

You can also access many of the County's online databases and get a digital library card from the comfort of your home. Need to complete a job application or download or print a legal form, use the library's computers. Don't miss out.

Annual Financial Report
The Friends of the Twentynine Palms Library remains on solid financial footing. Scroll down to the link for the FY20-21 annual report for the details. Although raising money during a pandemic is a challenge, your generosity enabled us to raise over $1,800 and, by adding from our reserves, we gave $3,750 to the branch to purchase new books. As restrictions ease, we hope to resume our fundraising activities and increase our donations tothe library for books, equipment, and other supplies. Individual donations are welcome and can make a difference.
