This morning for Rotary Radio Week, Jean-Louis Guillas joined Al Gaines in the studio to talk about the Rotary Club’s book sale.
The book sale will be from November 5th to 7th and Guillas says the big change this time is the location.
“For many, many years we did it in the mall, but just with COVID, we are not able to have this spacing in the mall. So, we’re moving to the 8th Avenue Hall, the Ukrainian Orthodox Auditorium and that’s going to be the location for drop-off of donations as well. We’ll have drop-off bins under the canopy at the front of the hall and you can bring it there and that will remind you that that’s going to be the location of the sale.”
The drop-offs will start next week on Monday, October 26th.
On Thursday, November 5th, and Friday, November 6th, the book sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Then on Saturday, November 7th, the book sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We think that’s lots of opportunity for people to come.”
Guillas adds that they’ll have to limit the number of people in the sale at a time.
“What we’ve got in stock is well-sorted and we’re going to try and find ways that people can shop quickly, efficiently, and find the good things that they want to find.”
The book sale is one of the longest-running fundraisers for the Rotary Club and Guillas estimates it’s been running for over 25 years.
