Volunteering for Book Sales
We are happy that you are considering volunteering to help with the Friends of the Dunwoody Library (FODL) book sales. We are confident you will have much personal satisfaction helping your library and community and meet new friends. Many of the FODL members are long term volunteers.
For the upcoming Jun book sale we need help with the following:
On May 28th, volunteers are needed for setting up folding table and using a hand truck to move boxes of books. On Friday through Wednesday help will be needed for unpacking , sorting and alphabetizing books. During the book sale, Thursday through Monday, volunteers will be needed to help customers with their purchases and resort and restock books. On Tuesday Jun 9th (Clean UP), we will be packing unsold books to send to charities, storing tables and equipment, and returning the sales area to the libraries normal condition. No one should do any work they feel they are not physically capable of doing.
Volunteers do not have to commit to a specific date or time or a specific amount of time. Just come to the library when you would like to work during the dates and times listed below and tell a member of the Book Sale Committee that you available to work. They will help you find a suitable job.
The workload and the number of workers available vary greatly during the day so volunteers cannot be scheduled for a specific time to work except a cashier.
If you would like to work as a cashier during the sale, you must commit to a specific date and time. Please email Sunny Jefferies and ask if additional cashiers are needed. Her email address is sunny@FriendsofDunwoodyLibrary.org
