Friends October Book Sale Important Info!

The Friends of the Ossining Public Library will be holding its big annual sale from October 14th through October 18th, 2015. We are seeking volunteers to assist in setting up, being present during the course of the sale, and helping to return the remaining books to our storage area when the sale is over. Volunteers would be asked to sign up for 2 to 3 hour slots during the hours of the sale. The biggest need for help is during the set-up and clean-up times. This consists of moving boxes, by hand cart, to and from the sale areas.

Please join us and participate in this collegial activity which benefits our community library!
