TWICE-TOLD TALES, a bookstore created to support Curtis Memorial Library, reopened Friday after a winter of renovation work. Barbara Burr, president of Curtis Friends, a 700- member group dedicated to supporting the library through volunteer work and fundraising, said all books and media sold at the store are donated, and it is staffed entirely by volunteers. The profits from sales help to keep the library a strong community center. Burr said the store is a win-win for everybody, for those donating books hoping they will go to another reader, and for those seeking titles at a reasonable price. Executive Director of the Brunswick Downtown Association, Debora King, said the association is excited to have the store in the downtown area, adding the it is an example of what volunteerism is, and what it can accomplish.
