Book Sale Volunteer

Help with a variety of tasks needed for the annual book sale and related activities before, during and/or and after the week of the sale.

Detailed Description: 
The annual Book Sale, held on a Saturday in January or February, is one of the most fun events at QUUF! The foyer and fellowship hall turn into a big used bookstore for the day, where you can buy a year’s worth of terrific books donated by a well-read community. The sale is planned for and carried out by a team. The coordinator provides overall organization of the event, including organizing volunteers and interfacing with the QUUF staff. A core group of volunteers meets with the coordinator to plan the book sale and work collaborately to carry out the sale in an efficient, community-minded, and economically profitable way. Core volunteers may lead up aspects of the sale, such as advertising, book sorting and storage, signs, etc. New in 201, a sub-group of volunteers is planning a private reception/pre-sale scheduled for the evening before the public sale. Volunteers with technical expertise or specialized book knowledge can help with online book sales before or after the community book sale. Some volunteers work only the week of/day of the sale, sorting and displaying books, serving as general helpers or cashiers, clean up crew, and other standard event tasks. Core volunteers attend 4-6 meetings over the course of 3-6 monts, Others work 2-5 days the week of the sale or the day of the sale itself. We are looking for 1-2 volunteers who would be willing to work with online book sales year round.
Service Term:
