Sorting Books - Books for America

Books for America needs volunteers to help sort through the thousands of donated used books we receive each week. Our warehouse is in Fairfax, VA, 25 minutes outside of Washington, DC. We have thousands of books coming in each week - it's a lot of fun sorting through them and seeing what comes in! Pretty much a used book lover's paradise. This is a great event for groups! The warehouse is not metro accessible, but we do have plenty of free parking. We work from 9am to Noon, every other Saturday.

 

8-10 volunteers per day and only children over 12 due to the type of work necessary.

      I think they only allow children 12+, don't think toddlers are allowed.

      That's ok! It turns out that they won't be with me, but I will keep watching for other ways to volunteer with them. Thanks!
