This past Saturday we had a dozen volunteers put in a heroic effort working at The Open Book. We did a little bit of everything to with sorting, organizing, boxing and moving books and fixtures to get ready for our move and opening of the Agia Sophia Coffee Shop and Bookstore. Thanks, to the everyone (especially for the Teen Group and Oscar from Milwaukie, OR) for a great initial work party.
As you see, 50,000 books that have been in a revolving inventory since the mid 1980s can be overwhelming without the extra hands. The work we did made it possible to begin the process of sorting out what would be put on sale for a ‘buck a book’, and which volumes will be retained for the opening of the new operation.
