9 August 2014: One of the highlights that we look forward to in the summer is the Orcas Library book sale. Literally, there are thousands of books available, some of which used to be mine. Islanders pick up their winter’s reading material and then we return our surplus books for next year’s sale. More proof that Orcas Islanders pride themselves in their sustainability! This year my haul included some Asian cookbooks, travel books about France and a very cool souvenir book printed in 1937 about the coronation of George VI and Westminster Abbey. Happy reading! Tm
PS. The Orcas Library has one of the highest book loan to population rates in Washington State!
