Friends of the Library is recruiting volunteers to assist with our annual Fall Used Book Sale from October 5th-October 9th, 2017.

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 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.

The Book Sale will take place October 6th-October 9th at the Lloyd Center DoubleTree Hotel Exhibit Hall (1000 NE Multnomah St, Portland, OR, 97232).


- Thursday, Oct 5 (Set-up): 9a-11:30a, 11:30-2p

- Friday, Oct 6: 5:30p-9p, 8:45p-10p

- Saturday, Oct 7: 8:30a-12p, 11:30a-3p, 2:30p-6p, 5:30p-9p, 8:45p-10p
