Help Sort Books Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10 am-2 pm

Do you love books? Are you looking for a fun, relaxed, and flexible volunteer position? Then, The Book Fairies is the perfect fit! Books keep tumbling into the warehouse and we need dedicated sorters to help check the books for age and condition. We are searching for volunteers to help us on a consistent weekly basis. It would be one day a week or more, your choosing. We are open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 am-2 pm.

The task involves sorting through the books we receive from book donors. We check each book for wear and tear and place them into categories from preschool through adult. The best part? You can take home any books you want as payment! Join us for a day and see if it's right for you. We would love to have you!
