ManorCare Health Services of Carlisle will hold a “Book and Bake” benefit on Thursday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the lobby of its facility at 940 Walnut Bottom Road, Carlisle.

All proceeds will support the Bosler Memorial Library Building a Better Bosler Capital Campaign.

Gently used books, a variety of baked goods and bookmarks made by ManorCare Health Services’ occupational therapy residents will be available for sale.

Books will remain on sale in the lobby from Friday, March 30, through Sunday, April 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event is being held in honor of Vivian Martinez-Vidal, a former Bosler Library director and beloved ManorCare resident who passed away on Jan. 1, organizers said.

Martinez-Vidal began a delivery service of large-print books to Carlisle area nursing homes, which later became the Cumberland County Library System’s STAR (Service to Adult Readers) program. In 2010, the STAR program delivered books and books on CD to more than 128 homebound individuals and 48 senior facilities. Many ManorCare residents are clients of the STAR program.

ManorCare Health Services provides a range services, including short-term post hospital skilled nursing and rehabilitation, long-term care and specialized dementia care.

The Building a Better Bosler project will double the library’s floor space to 38,000 square feet to meet the needs of the 53,326 residents in Bosler’s service area. It features a two-story addition and complete renovation of the library’s current facility at 158 W. High St., Carlisle, at a total cost of $6.5 million.

Construction began in December and is on track to being completed in April 2013.

For information about the benefit, call Karen Scott, ManorCare director of admissions, at 717-249-0085 or e-mail 372ADMISS@hcr-manorcare.com.

For details on the Building a Better Bosler Campaign, contact Sandra Kern, Bosler development officer, at 717-243-6574 or skern@ccpa.net.
