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

We'll be finding homes for all the new books coming that are destined for 2020 Spring distributions. 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. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather this evening as the space is not air conditioned!

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?
- Processing new incoming inventory destined for 2020 Spring Distributions!
- Moving boxes from one work space to another for those capable of doing so
- 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:

DO NOT GOOGLE BOOKS FOR KEEPS AND FOLLOW THE ADDRESS YOU FIND.
The warehouse is 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.
