Description
***This Volunteer shift will take place at our Books for Keeps Warehouse***

Come get over the hump and start your Wednesday off right with a little bit of service alongside your friends at Books for Keeps!

We'll be finding homes for all the new books coming in by way of either community donations. More books arrive in the warehouse almost every week, and volunteers like you make the inventory process manageable! Your help in the warehouse is absolutely pivotal in ensuring that we're using our resources to the fullest extent by keeping an accurate inventory of what remains on hand. We'll be in the space early enough to make sure we're out before the day begins to heat up too much too!

A Books for Keeps staff member will provide a quick orientation for everybody 5 minutes past report time as everyone gets situated. 

What can you expect from your time with us?
- You'll get first look at all the books headed to our Annual Book Sale in August
- We'll be organizing books based on age and genre donated from community members
- Moving boxes from one work space to another for those capable of doing so
- Packaging books to head out to our Annual Book Sale location
- A real good time spent alongside other like-minded, book-loving individuals 

Here's some things to remember prior to your volunteer shift!
  • Be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing as our warehouse is not air conditioned!
  • We do have water bottles for volunteers but we still encourage folks to bring their own as well!
  • Please be sure to wear closed toed shoes to your shift!
  • Be ready to have fun! :D
The following info is for finding our warehouse:

We are located at 420 Athena Drive, near Athens Tech and Southern Brewing Company. Please follow the directions below. There is no signage at the road, so it is easy to pass right by it!
  • If you're coming from Hull Road/Hwy 29, you'll go over a set of railroad tracks. Our building is the third driveway on the right after the railroad tracks.
  • Look for the building with the doorway that has a blue awning facing the road.
  • When you pull into the parking lot, drive all of the way to the far side - you'll see a door with the Books for Keeps logo, next to a loading dock.
  • Try to fill in the parking spots closest to the big recycling bin first if possible.
