Nov 16/17 Booksale and Elevator

Our thanks to volunteers, donors, and patrons who made the Nov 16 & 17 sale possible!  Two day sales in two rooms are a LOT of work.  Work was complicated by the continued unavailability of an elevator.  Again, FAL paid (a LOT, but they earned it again) movers to hand carry over 160 boxes and crates of sales materials, plus tables, up to the sales floor.  26 steps up per trip.  Albany Middle and High School students carried tables and boxes downstairs at the end.  We hope the elevator will be functional in December so we can resume accepting donations.  Until it is fixed, PLEASE NO DONATIONS.
