Play a key role in our fundraising efforts by sorting donated books and preparing them for sale. We need physically able people who can bend, handle books, and carry small groups of them to book shelves. After initial training, you'll judge if the book is in good enough condition before determining its category and placing it in the holding area or on the shelves for book buying clients. Our book sorting and sales areas are within the Main Library. We're looking for a commitment of two to three hours on any one day and during times when the library is open. For our monthly "Grab-a-Bag" sale on the first Wednesday of the month, we need folks to fill up book carts on Tuesday afternoons; others can wheel those into the sales area by 10 am, when the sale starts. Our used, inexpensive books encourage reading on the part of community residents.
