Wrap-up Book Blast August 13 - 15, 2015

The 15th Annual Book Blast is in the books! Nearly 20,000 books had been donated by the York County community for this year’s event including books from the library of Jim Rudisill. Nearly 150 YCHT members took advantage of their member benefit by getting first dibs at the selections on Wednesday, August 12, 2015, during the YCHT Members Only evening.

Thursday the doors opened to the public, followed by half price day on Friday and Buck-a-bag on Saturday. Nearly 700 attended the four day event with over $8,000 being raised. These funds support the collections, programs and educational activities of the Trust; including the YCHT Library & Archives. The YCHT staff extends many thanks; first to the York County community for donating the books, secondly to the many volunteers that survived two weeks of summer heat in sorting and selling them and finally to those that purchased them.  See you in 2016!
