Volunteers Welcomed to help with Set up (3 p.m. the day before the sale) and Take-down ( 2 p.m. the day of the sale).

If you can help, we need people who can do one or more of the following:

  • Take books out of boxes and organize them on tables before the sale
  • Consolidate books onto the carts and racks after the sale
  • Pack books into boxes after the sale
  • Mark outdated books for the free-book cart after the sale
  • Lift boxes and push carts between the Friends’ storage sheds and the auditorium before and after the sale.

Again, thanks to everyone who comes to help. We can’t do it without you! We look forward to seeing you again and others who can help this month.
