The Pawlet Public Library is looking for a few good men … and women and children to help set up a tradition nearing its fifth decade – the library book sale. The Big Book Move is Wednesday, July 27.
The transportation fleet will start loading and rolling at 5 p.m. sharp at Edi Mach’s Barn in Pawlet.
Leading the pack for the transportation fleet will be Tom Wilson, Dale Decker and the Oxbow 4-H Shooting Sports Team.
Fleet drivers Eric Hyatt, Ed Valerie, Eddie Cleveland and Jay Luebke and site expediters Cindy Legg and Ray Duquette will follow.
Over 25,000 books make their way to Mettawee Community School in West Pawlet in preparation for the Pawlet Public Library’s 44th Annual Book Sale. The book sale takes place July 30 and 3l.
To all our silent volunteers who just show up, we’ll be looking for you, organizers said. Movers must be at Mettawee Community School by 5 p.m. and ready to unload when the fleet arrives.
The labeled, boxed books will be distributed to their assigned areas in the gym. PPL Youth Volunteers are challenged to make the complete move in 1 to 1.5 hours.
When the last box hits the floor, the big book move volunteer pizza party begins.
Want to have fun while doing your Community Service?
