Columbia County Traveling Library

Spring 2018 Book Sale - Traveling Library

Twice a year, the Traveling Library hosts a major book sale fundraiser with 7000+ used books. We use the $8000+ in proceeds to put new books on the bookmobile for the communities we serve as a free public library.

We depend on a small army of community volunteers to pitch in for this effort. Can you help, even just for a few hours? The goal is that a lot of people do a little for a huge result!

The library is at the County Building at 702 Sawmill Rd. Bloomsburg. If heading out of Bloomsburg on Lightstreet Rd., go past Denny's, turn right on Sawmill Rd. at the next light, and go one mile to the Agriculture & Human Services Building - use the rear entrance in the lower parking lot. 

Food and drink is provided for volunteers! And we'll sign any forms required to certify volunteer hours. Do you know high school or college students who need volunteer hours??

See the job descriptions and hours below. To volunteer for any of the jobs, please sign up using this online form (be sure to click the 'Submit and Sign Up' button at the bottom and enter your name and email). You can also email or call the library director, Ammon Young: [email protected] or 570-387-8782 ext. 2 -- THANK YOU!

Location: Traveling Library, 702 Sawmill Rd. Bloomsburg, PA 17815
