The BEST Volunteers. (period)

To every person who volunteered for the Whale of a Used Book Sale, to every company who supported their employees in joining us to raise funds for Jeffco Public Library at the Whale Sale, and to every volunteer and organization who generously gives their time, knowledge, and dedication to the Foundation’s mission year-round – none of this would be possible without YOU!

Thank you!

Here are just a few photos from the Fall Whale Sale, featuring just a few of our MANY fabulous volunteers! Read more
