Benefits of Books

April 5th – 9 to 7
April 6th – 9 to 5


Reducing stress, improving your memory skills and increasing your focus and concentration are just some of the benefits of reading. An economical way to pick up some new reading material and help a good cause at the same time, is to attend Hospice Circle of Love’s Spring Book Sale. There you can find thousands of titles in a variety of categories. This year’s sale is scheduled for Friday, April 5th from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and on Saturday, April 6th from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Hospice Circle of Love, 314 S. Third, Enid.

Most of the books are in great shape and are sold for $1.00 if they are a hardback and just $.50 if they are a paperback. In addition, thin Harlequin type romance novels are sold for $5.00 a bag. Proceeds from the sale help Hospice Circle of Love serve patients that don’t have a Medicare or insurance benefit for hospice.

All the books are set-up by their genre. That way if mysteries are your thing, you will know just where to search for your favorite author. Other genres of fiction will include westerns, science fiction and religious fiction. There is also a large section of children’s books. Non-fiction genres that can be found at the sale include, history books, war books, self-help, how-to, craft and hobby books. There will also be a large section of religious works, coffee table books and cookbooks.

Other items, such as puzzles, books on tape and baked goods can be found at the sale as well.




Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is seeking volunteers to provide comfort and compassion to hospice patients, help out in the office and lend a hand with fundraisers.
 
A new volunteer training class has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 29th and Thursday, January 31st. It will be held from 2 PM to 5 PM at Circle of Love’s office, 314 S. Third.

“Our volunteers make a significant contribution to our operation. We are so grateful for all that they do, as are our hospice families. Whether they are reading to a patient in the nursing home or visiting with one in the home while their caregiver runs errands, they provide an invaluable service,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson.

All hospice volunteers are required to go through a training class. Areas covered include details about job duties, the history of hospice, privacy rights, family dynamics, infection control, psychological issues surrounding death and dying, physical symptoms and more.
