The Friends volunteered at the Free Market sponsored by the Westfield Green Team on Saturday, September 26. We did what we do best, managing the book donation portion of the event. Countless books were donated by community members. We sorted out the moldy and unreadable books, organized the books into children and adult sections and helped people find books during the Pick Up portion of the event. (Book sale volunteers, sound familiar?)
The best part was all of the books were FREE. So many people were thrilled with the wonderful selection and volume of books they took home. One of the best parts of the event, Green Drop took away all of the leftover books.
Participating in the community event was a great opportunity to meet book lovers in town. Be assured we handed out a bunch of Friends brochures. Many thanks to our volunteers that day:
Carol and Jerry Skotnicki, Anita Meyer, Cindy Colicchio, Christine Mason, Joan Sanborn, Lori Wendler, Suzanne O’Rourke, Mary Ellen O’Boyle, Paul Sanderson and Barbara Uhr.
