Books, Babes and Boyer

Published: Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 02:43 PM.

The Bunco Babes decided they could assist the library’s mission with planned play-dates and hoped that the concept would find suitable traction.

Many times, such noble ideas die over time due to lack of attention; we have certainly seen our shair.

But nearly $10,000 and six fundraisers later, the Reid Avenue Bunco Babes are going strong.

With nary a desire for the spotlight – just try getting them all to pose for one photo.

The library has more offerings, can allow visitors to check out more books on CD or DVDs, favorites among snowbirds, than ever before.

In turn, the library, despite cutting hours as a result of those budget shortfalls, has become even more of an asset, with membership, computer use, books on loan and other numbers on an upward arc.

The Reid Avenue Bunco Babes have become bricks to the foundation of the Port St. Joe Public Library, their twice-a-year fundraisers the mortar to constructing a better, more useful library.
