Well, it was time for the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library to have their Big Book Sale at Fort Mason Center. This year, it started a little later, opening closer to Halloween. I had originally signed on for just Saturday and Sunday, since my temp job has been going on. But there was a new development in my schedule recently. My hours were reduced to just Thursdays and Fridays at the office. So with a little more free time, I opted to volunteer at the sale an additional day. I signed up for a shift on Halloween. So three afternoons I was working a cash register. I was put on a "cash only" register, to help the line move more smoothly. It was nice to do this again, but not without drama here and there. Part of the time I had to write receipts by hand, because my machine wouldn't print the receipts. At one point, the machine ran out of receipt tape, and no one could find any! Prices were different this year: now hardcovers cost $4 each, $3 for paperbacks and $2 for media and children's books. But on Sunday, everything was still a dollar! Just as my last shift ended yesterday, there was some confusion, as a girl in a group expected to get her books for free, saying she'd done a certain amount of volunteering for the library. I had to get our supervisor to straighten the whole mess out. Anyway, glad that's done. I would like to go back and volunteer next year. Let's see what my schedule will be like!
