Library Notes

The library needs volunteers for the book sale, especially on July 4 for sales assistance and clean up. There are several options:

July 1 (3:30 p.m.): Only a 20-minute job. The tables need to be set in place in the gym. Bring work gloves.

July 2 (8 a.m. – noon): Transport books from library to gym next door and unpack onto tables. Heavy lifting if you move boxes, none if you unpack. Please loan us a dolly if you have one.

July 4 (9 a.m. – 2 p.m.): We need people to assist shoppers and keep tables organized at the sale. No lifting necessary.

July 4 (2-4 p.m.): After the sale, repack books, break down tables and sweep up. Heavy lifting for moving tables and repacked books, but none if packing.
