Congratulations and Thank You, Buena Park -- The Library's Blood Drive was a Resounding Success!

The Buena Park Library District and the American Red Cross were terrific partners on Thursday, August 17, 2006, for the Library’s first hosting of an American Red Cross Blood Drive. Not only did the Library meet its goal of 24 donors, we beat it! The Blood Drive brought in a total of 41 units which, according to the Red Cross, will save 123 lives. So, on behalf of the Buena Park Library District, a special “shout out” of tremendous thanks goes to all the donors, both in Buena Park and from other communities, who came in to our facility on that day to donate blood. Excellent job, one and all!

“Many of the participants said that holding the Blood Drive here was very convenient for them, so we are hoping to have another one in April during National Library Week, April 15-21, 2007,” said Kathleen Wade, Public Services Manager. “We hope that our next one will be as successful as this one was.”

The Library is located at 7150 La Palma Ave., between Knott and Western Avenues. The Library’s hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We have a used bookstore on the 2nd floor run by our library support group, the Volunteer Guild of the Buena Park Library. Call the Library at 714.826.4100 for information about programs, bookstore hours or anything else you are interested in, and we’ll help you find what you need.
