The Somers Library Foundation is preparing for the 2020 Book Sale to be held at the Somers Library from April 24 - 26. The foundation needs books and volunteers to make this event a success for our library. You can donate your gently loved books now. Just place them in or near the bins inside the library, by the Community Room, any time the library is open.  We need books in good condition (no major damage, tears, markings or highlighting) for all ages of readers—hard cover and trade books, but no regular paperbacks, please. You can also help by volunteering your time—whether it be an hour or two at a time, a few hours each week, or for as much time as you can spare. 

There will be a variety of different activities and roles needed for the Book Sale starting now through the end of April.  Opportunities for you to participate include sorting books by type and genre, moving books from storage to the library, setting up before the sale begins, managing cash registers, assisting customers in locating books, keeping books orderly during the sale, and cleaning up the library after the sale. 

If you’re interested in volunteering or have any other questions, please let us know.
