Need a volunteer opportunity?

I wanted to make you aware of volunteering for the SC Book Festival at the end of this month (Feb 26-28). If you go to this link and scroll down the page about halfway you'll see a link for volunteers for the festival itself. If you can't volunteer, please attend! It's a fantastic event!
