The Bookworm volunteer Mary Beth Massa was sent a flock of ducks for a very good cause. Colusa County Library Director Stacey Costello sent the flock her way to announce The Bookworm, located at 440 Market St., will be open for business during Founder’s Day, on Saturday, June 19, in downtown Colusa. The beloved bookstore is a project of Friends of the Colusa County Library, a non-profit group that raises money to provide new books to the county library system. To send a flock of geese or waterfowl to a residence or business (City of Colusa only) call 458-4141 or text (530) 701-0923. Tax deductible donations can be made payable to CFCC. Founder’s Day is a joint effort of multiple non-profit groups to bring a fun, new, exciting annual event to downtown Colusa.
