Volunteers are still needed to help with the sale.
“The twice-yearly Whale of a Used Book Sale is always popular with book lovers from throughout Jefferson County and beyond,” Jo Schantz, executive director of the Jefferson County Library Foundation, said in a news release. “Each year, our (sale) helps raise tens of thousands of dollars, which in turn benefit the programs of Jefferson County Public Library that are offered free to the public.”
Volunteers will help set up books in the children’s department, work in the children’s department, work as cashiers and work in the ‘save’ section, among other jobs. Volunteers will get free lunch and snacks, and for every four-hour shift, volunteers may take two free books.
