Library Book Sale Set Up and Book Donation Request
Friends of Penn Lake Library in Bloomington raises funds to support library programs. We need help for some heavy work of lifting boxes of books and setting up in the morning as well as lighter tasks later in the day of sorting books before our sale. We would welcome 2-3 hours (or more) of your help Saturday, Apr 28, from 9:15 a.m. to 11:15 p.m.. We will work until later in the afternoon (until 3-4?) if you can't come early. (Library is open 9-5.) We will have snacks for volunteers. Volunteers also get a coupon for $5 worth of books at the sale. Check in when you arrive with Jen, Natalie or Zo. Thanks! We also need help moving and sorting books on Sunday, Apr 29, from 12 to 3 p.m. (library opens at 12) and with tear down on Sunday, May 6, from 3 - 5 pm - see our separate posts. P.S. Any books you would like to donate can be dropped off at the library Apr 21-May 3. Public Sale is Sat, May 5 from 9-4; Bag Sale is Sun, May 6 from 12-2

What we're about

Public Group

We've given more than 4000 hours since December 2007!

We're a volunteer group dedicated to improving lives through good works. If you like to help others while making friends, this is the group for you!

We participate in a wide variety of projects all over the metro through various organizations. If you know a person or organization that is in need, please contact the organizer.

Adults ages 18 and over only, please. (Children may volunteer with their parents at some events. Please look for details on specific events, or ask the organizer.)

There are many more wonderful volunteer and donation opportunities than there can be events for our group. If we can't make an event from your suggestion at this time, or it isn't conducive to larger groups, please feel free to add it to the message board.

**Please note: A "Yes" RSVP means you are committed to be there. Organizations often depend on their volunteers as much as they do their employees to complete important tasks. Late cancellations and no-shows affect our ability to volunteer with these agencies in the future. Click "Files" or "About Us" on the left to see our policy.**
