Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Friends. They are the first impression of the Friends to customers and donors. Without our volunteers we couldn’t do what we do to support our Library!

Most volunteers are active in the actual business of selling books, whether that’s at a community/member sale, online sales, or other venues. We have positions to fit everyone standing and sitting! Because they believe in the value of their Library, our volunteers go the extra mile to help the Friends raise money to give back to the Library.


Being a Friends volunteer is a great way to meet fellow book lovers while contributing to your community.

For everyone’s safety volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
