Friends of the Library is recruiting volunteers to assist with Our Annual Fall Used Book Sale from October 20th-October 24th, 2016.

We at the Friends are looking for book-loving folks who would be interested in volunteering for one (or more!) shifts during our Fall Used Book Sale!

Our open volunteer positions appeal to a wide range of personalities and abilities - from the outgoing greeter and membership sales person, the ever-helpful Hospitality and/or At-Large (fills in where needed) person, to the unobtrusive physical work of restocking books, and helping clean up and straighten at the end of the day.

The Book Sale will take place October 21st-October 24th at the Lloyd Center DoubleTree Hotel Exhibit Hall (1000 NE Multnomah St, Portland, OR, 97232).


- Thursday, Oct 20: 9a-11:30a, 11:30-2p (Set-up)

- Friday, Oct 21: 3:30p-7p, 5:30p-9p, 8:45p-10p
