This is the 3rd Annual Spring Book Sale held at Fort Mason Centre's Festival Pavilion, the Spring Book Sale will feature over 250,000 books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl and other forms of media in over 70 categories.
EVERYTHING is $3 or less, with a 3-2-1 scale: $3-hard cover books; $2-paperback books; $1-DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl and other forms of media. All items remaining on Sunday are $1.
All proceeds benefit the San Francisco Public Library's education programs that promote literacy for children, teens and adults.
We will stack books, provide crowd control, and check out buyers at the cashier stations. There will be some snacks in the kitchen for the volunteers and we can grab a bite or drinks afterwards.
Please wear comfortable shoes for walking and standing. Some lifting will be required, about 20-25 lb. It's important to dress in layers, as the temperature by the bay is often cool and windy.
