Friends of the Library is recruiting volunteers to assist with our annual Spring Used Book Sale
from May 4th-May 7th, 2018 (with set-up on May 3rd).

We at the Friends are looking for book-loving folks who would be interested in volunteering for one (or more!) shifts during our Spring Used Book Sale at the Lloyd Center DoubleTree Hotel Exhibit Hall (1000 NE Multnomah St, Portland, OR, 97232).

If you love books and support libraries, volunteering at the book sale is a meaningful and enjoyable way to spend a weekend.

Our open volunteer positions appeal to a wide range of personalities and abilities - from the outgoing greeter and line management positions, to the detail-oriented book counters, to the unobtrusive physical work of the table stockers and the clean-crew at the end of each day.


- Thursday, May 3 (Set-up): 9a-11:30a, 11:30-2p

- Friday, May 4: 5:30p-9p, 8:45p-10p

- Saturday, May 5: 8:30a-12p, 11:30a-3p, 2:30p-6p, 5:30p-9p, 8:45p-10p

- Sunday, May 6: 10:30a-2p, 1:30-5p, 4:45p-6p

- Monday, May 7: 8:30a-12p, 11:30a-3p, 2:45-6p
