    Hope you have remembered to set aside your used books, DVD's, games, and puzzles (with all pieces) for the annual Thurston Used Book Sale-- Friday, June 10, 2016. It happens on the same night as the Ice Cream Social! We will start accepting books on Wednesday, June 1st – look for donation tables outside the Thurston Art Room!
    All books will be 50 cents, so you won't want to miss this evening! We also need BOOK LOVING PEOPLE to help us set up the gym stage and sort the books!
     Most of the sorting will happen during the two weeks following Memorial Day. Please contact us if you are interested in being part of this exciting sale!
