Momma says: I signed up for several shifts because I’m so excited by this event. If you have a block of free time (2-3hrs), join me!

The Friends of the Weston Library are looking for volunteers to help staff our upcoming book sale on Friday, November 4th – Sunday, November 6thin the Library Community Room. We are looking for commitments of at least one 2 hour shift on the following days and times:

Tues – Thurs Nov 1 – 3 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (set up). Shifts from 10am – noon, noon – 2 pm, 2 pm – 4pm.

Friday, November 4th Open to general public @ 9:00 a.m. and closing @ 8:00 p.m. (early buying from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.). Shifts from 7:30 – 10:30 a.m.(3 hours), 10:30 – 12:30,12:30 – 2:30, 2:30 – 4:30, 4:30 – 6:30,6:30- 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, November 5th Open to general public @ 9:00 a.m. and closing @ 5:30 p.m. Shifts from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m., 10:30 – 12:30, 12:30 – 2:30, 2:30 – 5:30 (3 hours).

Sunday, November 6th Open @ 9:00 a.m. and closing @ 5:30 p.m. Sun 5:30 – 7:30 (break down). Shifts from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m., 10:30 – 12:30, 12:30 – 2:30, 2:30 – 5:30 (3 hours), 5:30-7:30break down.

For set up we will need people to help us organize the books in the room and hang signs. On the days of the sale, we will be having 3-4 cashiers and ideally several people walking the floor, helping people with selections and keeping things organized (and sadly watching for stealing). For break down we will need help boxing up the unsold books so that they can be donated.

If you are able to volunteer, please email Nancy Haar at nhaar@optonline.net with the dates/times that work best for you. If you have some flexibility, please suggest multiple dates/times so that if we are full in one slot we can put you in at another time. The time goes quickly so if you have the ability to stay for 2 consecutive shifts that would be very helpful. Once she hears from you, Nancy will confirm your date(s)/time(s) by email and will also send a “reminder” email a few days before your shift(s). If you have any friends who might also like to volunteer, please feel free to forward this email and/or have them contact her. Thank you in advance for your support.

We are very excited about the book sale and believe it will be a wonderful community event.
