Being a booksale volunteer

If you love shopping at the Friends' booksales, why not help out too. The Friends need volunteers to help set up for Booksales on the Wednesdays and Thursday mornings prior to all sales. If you are able to work for two or three hours please call 847-376-2922 and leave your name and phone number. You'll need to be a Friends' member to volunteer.
