Back by Popular Demand: United Way Book Sale!

United Way Book and Nevada County Book Sale

After a two-year hiatus, Nevada County and United Way are pleased to announce this year’s Book Sale will begin in the lobby of the Eric Rood Administrative Center (ERAC) on October 17th and run through November 18th. The Book Sale will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Book donations from the community can be dropped off at the Human Resources office located on the second floor of the Rood Center in Suite 260. Donations will be accepted October 11th through 14th between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. 

Please don’t bring these types of items as we cannot accept them:

  • Magazines of any type
  • Encyclopedias
  • DVD’s or VHS tapes
  • Outdated reference books   

Community members wishing to help with the Book Sale are more than welcome!

Volunteer Opportunities Available:

Book sorters:  Sort and organize books in HR’s conference room the week of October 10-15.

Book setters:  Cart books down to the Lobby and set them out on tables Friday, October 14th, and Monday, October 18th (first day of book sale).  Any amount of time you can help during 8-5 on those days (or a bit longer) is great! 

Book monitors:  During the book sale, monitor the lobby, help customers, restock books, and direct donors of books to HR for drop off.  We are seeking volunteers from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. each day.

Interested in volunteering for any of these Book Sale opportunities?   Please email  

County employees, please check with your supervisor before volunteering.
