If you would like to volunteer to help set up the book sale and clean up the leftovers, the schedule is:


  • Thursday, October 12, at 3:30pm we will move the non-fiction from storage into the library meeting room. We will be moving only, since there is a meeting scheduled for the following morning.

  • Friday, October 13, at 10 am we will begin to set up the display of the non-fiction books and moving the remaining non-fiction books from storage to the meeting room. Lunch will be provided.

  • We plan to move the fiction books in the afternoon on Friday, beginning about 1pm.

  • Paperbacks will be moved from storage on Saturday.


  • Monday, October 23, at 9am. Cleanup is expected to be finished by noon.
