In his book he discloses the recipe, blending this unique lifestyle formula with the latest scientific findings to inspire easy, lasting change that may add years to your life.

Friends of Chelsea District Library Still Need
8 People to Save the
Book Sale


Save the Book SaleThank you to everyone who has offered to donate time to help save the Friends of Chelsea District Library book sale! The Friends still need eight volunteers to keep the book sale running. 

Long time Used Book Sale Coordinator, Sharon Pignanelli, is stepping down from her leadership role at the end of the year. The sale on November 12 of 2011 is the last one she will be coordinating!  


The book sales are currently the only revenue generating event organized by the non-profit group, the Friends of Chelsea District Library. Funds produced play an essential role in enabling many library programs and funding special library needs. Library funding is continually decreasing and extra revenues from the Friends are  

needed more now than ever.


Please contact Cynthia Silveri, President of the Friends at for more information.
