Be a Friends Volunteer

Book Sale Volunteers
Volunteers are needed the Friday before a book sale to help set up. This involves helping to unpack and organize the thousands of items being sold.
Helping with set up is a great way for students to earn service hours. Set up generally takes around 3 hours.
Volunteers are also needed on Saturday and Sunday the weekend of the sale. People who have volunteered before may be asked to work as cashiers. New volunteers will be asked to assist customers and keep sale items organized. Volunteer shifts on sale days last 2 ½ - 3 hours.
Volunteers are also needed to help pack up and store unsold items after the sale is over on Sunday night. Helping with take down is another great way for students to earn service hours. Take down generally takes around 1 hour.

Volunteers are needed to help shelf donated books once they have been sorted and priced. Book shelvers need to be detail-oriented, focused, and available to work in the evening on a weekday.
Want to help the Friends but have no spare time?
How about putting one of our stylish signs in your front lawn to let your neighbors know about the upcoming sale? This publicity is easy for you and invaluable to the Friends.
