Seeking Candidate Interested in Running the Book Sales

The Board of Directors of the Beatley Friends is seeking candidates interested in serving as Director-at-Large for Book Sales. This Director will work closely with our Vice President of Book Sales for one year to learn the steps involved in a successful sale, with the goal of assuming the Vice President position for a 3-year period.

Position Description: The Director-at-Large would have the opportunity to learn how to plan and manage the Friends’ twice-yearly sale of donated books from one of the areas’ most experienced book sale managers. They would gain experience in coordinating and training volunteers, working with local book dealers, and publicizing the events. Each step is documented, position descriptions have been developed, and a large cadre of dedicated volunteers can be counted on to help.

Time Commitment: Duties can take an average of 3-4 hours per week during much of the year. During the month preceding and during each book sale, the time commitment increases, and it can reach 30 hours per week during the sale.

Why Consider It: Working with the Friends provides both stimulating and rewarding experiences and provides an excellent way to give back to the community. This rewarding position is key to the vital support the Friends group provides to the library.
