The used book sale sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson Library is coming up again on Memorial Day weekend, May 28 and 29. The publicity notices are going out and sale posters will soon be posted around the Valley. The planning committee has met a few times to make preliminary plans for this annual sale, and we appreciate the willingness of people to take charge of portions of the sale planning.
We are looking for helpers who can give a few hours of time during the sale weekend to make this another successful fundraiser for the library. As you know, it is a great opportunity to meet other local folks, and to have a “first look at and chance to purchase” the many books that will be available for sale.
Specifically, we are looking for helpers on:
Fri., May 27, 9:00 – 11:30 – meet at WCC to sort books to tables. Coffee, tea and treats will be available! Many hands make for fast work – and you would have the “first look” at books for sale.
Sat., May 28 – helpers to maintain books on tables. Shifts are: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm, or 12:30 – 3:00 pm.
Sun., May 29 – helpers to maintain books on tables. Shifts are: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm, or 12:30 – 3:00 pm.
Note: We are looking for one experienced volunteer who would be willing to act as “shift leader” for the Sunday morning (10:00 – 12:30) shift; just to be the “answer person”; we have 2 volunteers acting as cashiers all set for that time slot.
Sun., May 29, 3:00 – 4:00 pm, packing up unsold books, folding up tables for storage, clean-up. Lots of volunteers always make this go quickly.
If you are able to help, please email me with your time preference/availability. There will also be a sign-up sheet at the Library.
Everyone truly enjoys the annual Book Sale event, so don’t hesitate to volunteer. We look forward to seeing many of you there, and please spread the word with others who may be willing to help!
