We are planning a Rotary Books for the World Booklegger book sorting and packing work party at the Rochester Central School District Depot on Thursday, June 25 starting at 1:00 PM and possibly going to 4:00 PM? Located at 835 Hudson Avenue, Bldg.6 (in the back of the campus)
There are 19 pallets of books that are available that need to be sorted and packed and palletized.
