As you may or may not know, the annual used book sale at Brunswick Railroad Days is our biggest event of the year, not to mention our primary fundraiser. Believe it or not, October 1 is only a month-and-a-half away. We need your help to make it successful.

We would appreciate a donation of a couple of hours of your time on October 1 and/or October 2 during Railroad Days. We need help with book sales, organizing the books, and especially with setup (on Saturday) and breakdown (on Sunday).

Not sure if volunteering is for you? Bring a friend! “Many hands make light work” as the saying goes.

Got teenagers? Got teenagers who need volunteer hours? This is a perfect opportunity, and we always need young, strong backs during setup and breakdown.
