Annual Summer Booksale

The Friends of Stowe Free Library have announced their 2017 Booksale Dates!

Starting July 2nd (for set-up) and

running through July 24th (clean-up)


  1.  Put up the signs for the sale around town.  This can be done by 2 people in early June.  One to volunteer for the Mountain Rd.,  the other to do the town.  We will give you a list, and most stores and motels are more than happy to put up our signs.  (Anyone for Waterbury or Morrisville?)

  2.  Be an opener or closer.  We will make sure you know the ropes,  this is a job for 2 people at a time, especially if there is rain and the plastic needs to be secured, as well as laying it out to dry after the weather has passed.  The plastic will also need to be secured well at closing.  We are often there to help too, if things are bad!  

  3.  Volunteer to be a "Captain of the Day.,” You will take over being responsible for all volunteers as well as the sales for that day.  We do ask that you do this in pairs so you can take turns.  We also ask that you do not sign up on consecutive days. Sign up sheets will be posted at the library, behind the front desk.

Check out the Calendar for the starting dates!
