The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library have compiled detailed information about its benefit book sales and presents it here as a guide for those who wish to organize sales in their own communities. The committees needed to operate the sale are listed, and the duties of the chairmen are described. Suggestions are given for collecting books, publicizing the need for books, sorting into categories, and pricing books and magazines. Information on staffing the sale includes lists of volunteers and paid staff needed, suggestions for volunteer recruitment, and sample recruitment and information documents. Suggestions for making arrangements are listed, as are needed supplies and instructions for cashiers. Publicity ideas, a special preview sale, and methods for counting the proceeds are also discussed. Financial summaries of the most recent San Francisco sales are attached. (LS)
