A theme of immense gratitudehas emerged from nonprofit organizations throughout Longmont throughout the year and the pandemic. In a series of letters throughout the day, Longmont nonprofit organizations are sending out their heartfelt thanks to the Longmont community for the support they have received. The Longmont Leader accepts contributions, photos, and op-eds for publication from community members, business leaders and public officials on local topics.

The 2021 Friends of the Longmont Library had a very successful Book sale this past weekend. We raised money to help our library with programming and items not addressed in their budget.
We couldn’t have accomplished this without the community’s book donations and purchases, and the cadre of volunteers who made everything flow smoothly; from the folks at the front taking donations on Thursdays; the box gatherers; the sorters responsible for categorizing books; those who helped set up the sale by moving palettes of books, setting up tables; the stockers putting boxes in the correct genre locations; our cashiers; “floaters” who greeted buyers and kept the books in order; everyone that helped take down and repack the books after the sale. Gratitude as well to the staff of the library for always being friendly and helpful.
We are grateful to the enthusiastic readers of Longmont who bought books, joined or renewed their Friends membership and made donations.
Our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful Longmont community.
The Board of the Friends of the Longmont Library
