Annual Blake PTSA Book Sale and First Open Mic!

We need folks to help with the fast-approaching used book sale – it’s really fun (we promise!) and you can sign up for as many/few hours as you like.  Please join us! Click here to sign up!

 Library Books

Don't forget to drop off your used books at Blake! Our bin is right outside the entrance so it's super easy to do :).

Our used Book Sale – the PTSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year – is tentatively scheduled for Feb 10-25 with a special Open Mic night on Feb 23. We want to get more students involved this year so please start talking it up with your kids!

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, please email

The Blake PTSA relies on it’s annual Book Sale to support amazing programs that enrich our entire community. And we can’t do it without YOUR support

So, how can you help? The Blake Book Sale needs:

• Volunteer Coordinator / Organizer - Coordinate and maintain a Sign-Up Genius to schedule volunteers to work at this year's sale in February. Field emails from people looking to volunteer and maintain our volunteer mailing list. This is all work-from-home.

• Community Liaison -- Reach out to area PTSAs and other community groups to promote the sale. Also work-from-home.

• Student Volunteer Coordinator / Organizer -- Great opportunity for a student leader to help! The Student Volunteer Coordinator will organize and schedule student volunteers. (Would be a great addition to that resume or college app!)

• Open Mic Coordinator: A student or students to organize our Second Annual Open Mic Night on Sat., Feb. 25. Use your contacts and focus your energies and recruit performers (and an audience!) We'll be open late! Again, this is great experience especially for any performance-oriented student.

Finally, we're looking for adults and students to help set up the Book Sale during the first week of February - and sell books during the sale itself (Feb 10-25). It’s really fun!! Watch your email for more information on that in coming weeks.

Whatever talent or interest you have, whatever amount of time you can offer, we can use you (and you'll get free books in return)!
