Requesting volunteers to help prepare withdrawn library books to be sold in our book sale.

Hello Friends,

This is a call for volunteers from the Friends of the Kingstowne Library group to help prepare withdrawn library books to be sold in our book sale. Once books are withdrawn from the library collection they must be stripped, i.e. all of the property identification must be removed or blocked out. We need volunteers to work in the library to do this chore. At the moment the plan is to have Margaret Weaver meet with volunteers to demonstrate what is needed. After that, supplies and samples will be left on the shelves with the books so that people can be reminded of how the books should look once the chore is done. There would be no set hours for doing the chore. Ideally people would work in two hour time periods. The best times to do this chore are in the late afternoon any day and evenings on Tuesday and Thursday. The quantity of materials to be processed varies during a month, but for the most part there are always items to be processed. One caveat to all of this is that the marking out is done with permanent markers which have a rather strong smell.

We are in desperate need of people to do this chore.

If you would be interested in helping prepare materials for the book sale, please call or send an email to Margaret Weaver, 730 719-0825 weavermha@gmail.com.
