Go green and checkout a Party Pack for your event!
The Guin Library owns two Party packs, each pack contains: 20 large plates, 20 knives, 20 bowls, 20 forks, 20 cups, 20 spoons, 1 carry tote, 1 Party Pack sign, a packet of dish detergent
All tableware in Park Pack is dishwasher safe.
Please reserve the Party Pack in advance of your event to ensure its availability: email the Guin Library firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick up/return of the Party Pack.
At the beginning of the event: remind attendees that the Party Pack items are not disposable
Provide a location for your attendees to return dirty dishes
Display the Party Pack sign near the Party Pack items
At the end of the event, check the trash to make sure no items were thrown away
Please use either the Staff Lounge or the Guin Library's dishwashers to clean and dry dishes
Please do not stack the plates on top of each other in the dishwasher bottom rack (they may get pushed out of the rack, onto the heating coils, and will melt)
Please use the dishwasher detergent pods included in the Party Pack (they are biodegradable, free of dyes, chlorine, and phosphates)
Put one detergent pod in main detergent cup and close the cover (you can break open pod if it does not fit)
Please wash all dishes--it may take multiple loads
Once they are clean and dry, place them in the tote bag
Please count all the items and make sure you aren’t missing any!
Alert Guin staff if something was missing/breaks/or is no longer usable
Return the Party Pack to the Guin Library or arrange for us to pick it up!
