Friends of the San Francisco Public Library is looking for extra person power to help set up for the annual book sale at the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason. It is an awesome event for an awesome cause, keeping San Francisco Public Libraries completely free for anyone to use!
They receive donations of more than half a million books per year, and sell them to raise money for the libraries. The Annual Book Sale fills the pavilion, it is monumental. Set-up takes a day and a half, Monday Sept 23rd, 9am to 5pm and Tuesday Sept 24th 9am until about 230pm.
I have volunteered at 3 sales so far and love the experience. Naturally, I am a reader and still into real books :)
The website is:
If you would like to volunteer for this great cause, it takes a couple minutes to first register as a volunteer and then to choose your shifts. Besides shifts for set-up, one could also volunteer during the sale. However, they are particularly keen for more volunteers for setting up.
