Turning the Page

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 10 people are interested

Carpe Librum will be popping up at Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center (1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW) for the exciting Capital Books Fest-an outdoor book fair in the square on April 22nd!

This is a great opportunity to spend a sunny day supporting literacy and education in the DC public school system. We will need volunteers to help us pop-up, check-out and pop-down the tables and book shelves for this extraordinary and energetic fundraising event.

Can you lend a hand?

  • The first shift is from 9:00am - 11:00am helping to set up the table and shelves.
  • The second shift from 5:00pm - 6:30pm helping to break down the tables and pack up books.
If you have all day, or just a few hours, we would love to have you come help out!

Contact Phebe at pminer@turningthepage.org for more information.

(By the way, we're not just any bookstore: we're a fundraising bookstore! Carpe Librum collects donated books, CDs and DVDs to support the DC nonprofit Turning the Page.)
