Come volunteer with our October Book Sale

October 21 - 29

Our Fall Book Sale is October 26 - 29 and we're looking for volunteers to help with setting up, sorting books, working the sale and clean up.  Community service credit is available.  Even an hour or two is appreciated. 

We're using Sign Up Genius to register our volunteers.  Check out the schedule and sign up here. Or, contact the library.

Proceeds from the sale provide major support for the programs and museum passes available to you through the library.
