Help Fresno County Public Library

Sorting in progress (8/10)

Do you need community service hours for school?

Volunteer your time and energy at the Friends of the Fresno County Public Library's BIG Book Sale! All proceeds go to the Library, so any help you can contribute will ultimately benefit you in a variety of ways. The KSEE 24 Drive-thru Book Drive for the sale runs until 7 PM today (South side of Sierra Vista Mall, back parking lot near Kohl's), and over the next few days volunteers are needed to help sort donations and assist with the sale itself.

To volunteer, all you need to do is show up during any of the hours the Friends are preparing for the sale, or during the actual sale days, and let them know you want to lend a hand. There will be plenty to do, and any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated:
