Booksavers’ Surprise Book 
By Herb Swartz
On any given day during the week two or three volunteers are at their Booksavers’ computers checking the value of donated books selected by the managers. For the most part this is routine work as books valued at over $7.00 are priced and put on the system.
Every once in a while there is an excited "Wow!" when someone finds a book valued up to $100 or more. Imagine what happened when a book entitled "The Life, Times and Treacherous Death of Jesse James", dated 1882, came up for pricing. A conservative estimate put value of the book at $2,500.
When any book sells we remember with thanksgiving the many generous donors and pray for those whom MCC is able to serve because of the many who buy our books.
 

Volunteers Needed!

We welcome volunteers to sort books, look up books on the internet, list books on our software, recycle paper and cardboard, and stock shelves.

Booksavers’ Surprise Book

By Herb Swartz

On any given day during the week two or three volunteers are at their Booksavers’ computers checking the value of donated books selected by the managers. For the most part this is routine work as books valued at over $6.95 are listed to be uploaded on the used book internet market.

Every once in a while there is an excited "Wow!" when someone finds a book valued up to $100 or more. Imagine what happened when a book entitled The Life, Times and Treacherous Death of Jesse James, dated 1882, came up for pricing. A conservative estimate put value of the book at $2,500!

When any book sells we remember with thanksgiving the many generous donors and pray for those whom MCC is able to serve because of the many who buy our books. 

We need volenteers to sort books, look up books on the computer, list books on-line, price retail books, recycle paper, stack retail shelves, process orders and do shipping.

We welcome retired persons, work-study students, persons who want to do community service, etc.
