ManorCare Health Services’ Book & Bake Benefit will continue through Sunday at its location at 940 Walnut Bottom Road in Carlisle. All proceeds go to support the Bosler Memorial Library’s Building a Better Bosler Capital Campaign.
Gently used books are on sale in the lobby 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 ManorCare resident, who passed away on Jan. 1, 2012. 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.
The Building a Better Bosler project will double the library’s floor space to 38,000 square feet in order to meet the needs of the 53,326 residents in Bosler’s service area, according to ManorCare. The project features a two-story addition and complete renovation of the library’s current facility at 158 W. High St., in Carlisle. The project will cost $6.5 million, and construction is on track to be completed in April 2013.
