March and April are busy months for the Five Colleges Book Sale -
This major fundraiser for Wellesley (as well as for Mt. Holyoke, Simmons, Smith, and Vassar) is possible due to the work of over 300 volunteers each year.
The Book Sale will happen on April 21 & 22 at Lebanon High School Gym.
The Wellesley sorting day is on March 31 at the Staples Plaza on Route 12A in West Lebanon in the two store fronts closest to Staples. To volunteer on the sorting day, please contact Nancy Dean at email@example.com. Wellesley alums are responsible for opening and closing the site -- and providing snacks for sorters.
Book donations are accepted at the sorting site from March 6 - April 11. Organizers welcome donations of books, manuscripts, prints, maps, memorabilia, CDs, DVDs, videotapes, and books-on-tape. (They cannot accept encyclopedia, Reader's Digest condensed books, Harlequin Romances, ex-library books, magazines, vinyl records, or audiocassette tapes, or home recordings.) There are also donation drop boxes at Hanover and Lebanon Coops and the Howe Library (rear entrance), Lebanon, and Kilton Libraries.
Volunteering opportunities abound! Providing snacks, delivering books, sorting books, selling, setting up, and more - it's all needed and it's all helpful. To volunteer, please contact: Nancy Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindy Heath at email@example.com.
11:00AM - 2:00PM Sat 7 Apr 2018
Registration will open in the next few days. Online registration will be available at this site next weekend and, as always, alums can reply to our paper newsletter which will be out soon.
For now, please save the date!
The paper newsletter will be coming in the next week or so. We will extend the invite on both the book sale and and the Annual Meeting to our friends in New Hampshire as well.
