Fall 2019 "Whale of a Used Book Sale" --- at Jeffco Fairgrounds

Hello Book Enthusiasts, Readers, Collectors, Library Lovers and Those Looking to Help! 

******************************************************************************

We need your help at the FALL 2019 Whale of a Used Book Sale...! This is a much-anticipated community event which depends on its wonderful core of volunteers!  Where else might you uncover a 1st Edition copy of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women or Tolstoy's War and Peace, and be surrounded by 80,000 books!  Please sign up for the dates, times and categories you desire to work at the Sale.

You're welcome to sign up for multiple shifts. It's so much fun that you may want to sign up with a friend...or two! 

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Added Benefit: We feed our volunteers!  Please arrive early and check-in at the Volunteer Table.  Please plan to get lunch before or after your scheduled shift. Snacks and beverages provided throughout the day in the Volunteer Kitchen.  You won't go hungry!

You will receive a confirmation email today and also a reminder email 2 days before your shift. Note that you will be notified via email or at the Sale if we need to shift your preferred activity to a different one to assure we have help in all areas.

As a thank you for your help, volunteers will receive 2 free books of your choosing for each shift worked!  Thank you so much for your time. Your help truly makes this event possible!

p.s.  Must be 14 years of age to volunteer.
