We Welcome Volunteers!

We receive hundreds of donated books each month. We sell them at our bi-monthly book sales, and we sell them on Amazon. Could you help us?

We will show you how to list books on Amazon.com. We sold over $15,000 worth of books this way last year. We do our book scanning and listing once or twice a week at our store at 330 Reservation Rd Suite F in Marina. Help us and you will get the first look and first pick of all our inventory while you learn the basics of being a book dealer! Scanning usually happens on Saturday and one week day per week. email Dana at cleahoff@gmail.com if you want to volunteer. All volunteer work is done by appointment.

If you enjoy helping the public find great books, come help us at our bi-monthly book sales. Click on our Book Sales page for details.
