Our community’s generous contributions continue to help us help the Brunswick Branch Library’s missions.

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 7 is only a little more than a month away. We need your help to make it successful.

We would appreciate a donation of a couple of hours of your time on October 7 and/or October 8 during Railroad Days. We need help with book sales, organizing the books, and especially with setup (on Saturday) and breakdown (on Sunday). No previous experience necessary!

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.

Have a truck that we can use to transport the books the two blocks from our storage to our location for the sale? Please let us know!

There are three ways you can sign up:

We will never sell, give away, or otherwise reveal your contact information.
