New Volunteer Opportunity

Friends of Eugene Public Library has an opening to join the team that processes incoming book/media donations for our various sales venues: Annual Book Sale, minisales(our frequent popup sales at Downtown EPL), online sales and our used bookstore, Second Hand Prose.  This job is a Good as New Fiction specialist.  It involves a couple of hours a week September – April, selecting the newest and nicest fiction from the incoming book/media donations; spiffing up the books a little as needed, pricing and packing the items for storage at our warehouse, and working 2-3 days in the Good as New section at our annual Book Sale at Lane County Events Center.  (Our next sale will be April 14-15, 2018, with setup the 13th.)  What are the benefits to you?  You will be helping the Friends raise monies for EPL programs, getting a look at the newest and nicest fiction and, especially, working with a great group of dedicated volunteers.  Sound like something that interests you?  For more information please contact Carol Hildebrand 541-344-4267 orcaroldane@aol.com    Thanks very much; we depend on our volunteers to #helpushelpEPL.
