June 2021 Traveling Library Book Sale Volunteer Sign Up

Traveling Library Friends,

We will have another gigantic tent book sale with 20,000+ books outside under a tent from June 3-9. This is a huge effort and we rely on our community members to pitch in and volunteer. We are counting on you to help volunteer and/or recruit others to help out!

[To see the signup slots, scroll down below this message.]

Book Movers - We need MANY people who can load hundreds of 30-60 pound book boxes from the storage pile to a flatbed cart, and then walk them up to the tent. Please call on any folks with strong muscles! We especially need this help the evening of June 1 and all day June 2, as well as the evening of June 9. We need some people to help bring books in trucks or vans from offsite locations.

Setup Helpers - We need a large number of people to do the medium-duty work of unpacking pre-sorted books and setting them out on tables on June 1 and all day June 2. On June 1 between 3-6pm, we need folks to set up plastic storage shelves and tables. (Setup helpers get to shop early!!)

Sale Helpers - We need 3-5 people at a time throughout the sale to help keep books organized, put out new books as needed, and help customers take books to their cars. Our staff and board members will serve as cashiers.

Takedown Helpers - We need an ENORMOUS GROUP of people between 6-9pm on June 9 to box up unsold books (and others to move them), and to move tables and shelving. We also need folks to load up boxes of books to go to recycling and take it to the center at your convenience. On June 10, we need help in the morning to take care of any unfinished work, to take up the tarp, and to move things to our offsite storage facility.

We hope more people will feel comfortable volunteering now that so many are vaccinated. We will still be observing strict COVID-19 restriction (masks, hand sanitizing, and distancing) .

If you can't help, maybe you can help us find people who might be willing to volunteer? This is a great opportunity for students who need community service hours! 

[To see the signup slots, scroll down below this message.]

The tent sale is happening across from where the bookmobile parks at 702 Sawmill Road, Bloomsburg (near Lightstreet) and it will run from 8am - 8pm for seven days to allow us to limit people to 25 at a time under the huge tent and sell most of our books.

Masks, hand sanitizing, and distancing are required for volunteers and customers. It will be safer than grocery shopping because of the outdoor environment. Volunteers will mostly be under tents and will have access to water, snacks, restrooms, masks, hand sanitizer, and an air conditioned break space. We only need 3-5 volunteers per shift for the sale helper times because things are spread out.

We really need a lot of help moving boxes Tue. 6/1 and Wed. 6/2 and takedown help on Wed. 6/9 and Thu. 6/10 -- please help or send strong, young people with good backs! Flatbed carts will help a lot but there is a small distance to carry boxes to the tent. Many hands make light work...
