Lorrie Stapleton of the Book Swap at Holly Hill said her group is looking for additional volunteers at the Book Swap at Holly Hill on Friday or Saturday mornings from 8:00am-12:00 noon.
This is an ongoing need and is quite flexible. Volunteers can choose to help out one day a month, once a week, or just be on the sub list on call for when regular volunteers are on vacation.
The book swap has over 150 visitors each day and receives up to 100,000 used books a year!
Volunteers help us sort and maintain our free library of over 4,000 titles. They also help us box up excess books to deliver to schools, homeless shelters and senior centers in Fairfield County.
If you are interested in helping, please email Lorrie@books4everyone.org, or just drop by any Friday or Saturday morning.
“We do ask that volunteers are at least 16 years old and able to lift small boxes of books,” Stapleton said. “To date we have hand delivered 118,000 books from Holly Hill to 28 senior and community centers and over 100 schools and homeless shelters in our area.”
Books4everyone.org, which also receives gently used books from schools, libraries and book drives has hand delivered a total of about 185,000 books since the effort started in 2015.
