New Volunteers: Next Orientation is Sunday, September 27

Kylie in Indiana heard about us from a friend and sent us this wonderful note along with her first order for books:

Thank You drawing

Come help make a difference with us—one package of books at a time. Join us for our next new volunteer orientation, led by one of our experienced volunteers, Sunday, September 27, 1–2 p.m., right before our regular 2–5 p.m. work session. Get the details here.

Can’t make it this Sunday? Plan now to join us for the Sunday, October 25 orientation. Or learn how you can get involved in other ways. See you soon!
