Calling for volunteers

It takes a community to run a book sale. Join our friendly team in Palmerston North by volunteering at the Book Sale. The kitchen will be open for sustenance and it’s lots of fun.

You could:

  • Be part of the team setting up the sale: You’ll be helping get the books and other items on to the tables in their different categories.
  • Help at the book sale: Friday 4 September to Sunday 6 September. On sale days, take care of a checkout, assist our kitchen staff, or help customers as they search for treasures.
  • Help at closedown: Sunday 6 September, afternoon. This is when things really get hectic as it all gets taken down for another year.
