FoL Book Sort

The Friends operate a used book sale area in the library basement and hold public sales approximately every other month. To prepare for these sales, they have book sorts about once a week. At the sorting sessions, volunteers look through the donated items recently received and decide if and where they should be shelved. Occasionally, this time is used to organize and prepare for upcoming sales. Sorts are a great opportunity to socialize, chat about books, and help your library. You don’t need to RSVP, just come when you can and stay as long as you like. Check in with the staff at the Library Services Desk and you will be directed down to the basement.
