Volunteers are also needed to help pack up books at the end of the sale, on Monday, October 2, at 9:00 am,” says Susan Fitzgerald, book sale coordinator. For information about volunteering for any phase of the book sale, please call the Library at 236-3440.

All of the funds raised at the book sale will be used to purchase new books and for children and adult programs at the Camden Public Library.
