Thank you JD Quarterly of Arctic Petroleum Products for donating the use of their delivery truck; driver Jeff Babitt; and the Kenai Central High School Football Team for moving the books from our old storage location at the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District who we also thank for allowing us to store books at its location for the past few years.
