Please join us on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 4:00 pm at our Annual General Meeting. The meeting will be held at the Gasser Foundation Board Room at 433 Soscol Avenue, Suite 120 in Napa. We will be installing new board members, reviewing the results from our current year’s operations as well as planning for the upcoming fiscal year. If you have any questions, please use the contact tab above. Our thanks to the Gasser Foundation for the use of their conference room.
Did you know there are books for sale in the lobby of the Library all the time? Look to the left as you enter the library. You will see our expanded sales area. The shelves are full of volumes that have been specially selected for sale. There are popular authors, new-er releases, current topics and ones we just find interesting. Each book is usually $2 and the proceeds from the sales go to support programs at the library. So when you come to the library, check it out.
The sale is on the honor system so after you have gathered your purchases, please put your money in the cash box located on the wall between the sale shelves. You can see it in the photo.
While our regular production area (where we accept, sort, clean and box books in anticipation of our quarterly book sales) was under construction we were fortunate enough to utilize the Community Room at the Napa County Library to hold an on-going Book Sale in place of our quarterly sales. Now that the renovation of our production area is complete we will be moving out of the Community Room and to our new space.
The Children’s section is the next area for renovation so they will be moving to the Community Room as soon as we vacate. What does this mean for our Book Store and book sales?
It means that we have shut down the store and will defer our 2017 sales until the Summer of 2017. We thank everyone who visited the Book Store and made it a success. We have had many positive comments about the full time store and why can’t we be open all of the time. For now the short answer is location and staff. But that doesn’t mean that sometime in the future we don’t get the shopkeeper bug again.
