The Friends of the Greenburgh Library organization is looking for volunteers who know and love books and can start volunteering immediately to prepare for our annual Book Sale, October 12-15. We need people to sort and pack books. No heavy lifting, but you must be able to sort, shelve or pack boxes. We really welcome people who are expert in non-fiction: history, health and wellness, psychology, cooking and crafts, sports, and/or the fine arts, etc. Must be able to donate at least four hours a month, and attend an orientation. Volunteers should love books, and our wonderful Greenburgh Public Library. Please contact Lita Orlay, book sale manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
