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

Carpe Librum will be popping up at Columbia Heights Civic Plaza ( 1400 Park Rd. NW ) for an exciting outdoor book sale on May 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 bookshelves for this extraordinary and energetic fundraising event.

Can you lend a hand?

  • The first shift is from 8:30 am - 10:00 am helping to set up the table and shelves.
  • The second shift is from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm helping to break down the tables and pack up books.

Whether you have all day or just a few hours, we would love to have you come help out!

Contact Marin at 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.)
