For the second year in a row, the Briarcliff Manor Public Library's book sale a big hit.
Last year's sale was the brainchild of Girl Scout and Briarcliff High School student Caroline Pennacchio, whose efforts earned her a Silver Award.
This year, Pennacchio said she collected more than 10,000 donated books for the three-day-sale, which was held the same weekend as Briarcliff Manor's Community Day with the help of a number of volunteers.
"In addition, items that were not sold are being donated to a variety of community groups within Westchester and beyond," Glick added, citing Ossining Open Door Children's Literacy Program, Blythedale Parent's Library, the Graham School, Greymoor Residence, My Sister's Place, Briarcliff Manor Department of Special Services, Putnam Hospital, Rhode Island Grade School and other charities associated with increasing literacy.
In all, the sale, "was a huge success," said Glick.
