Friends of the Library

2019 Summer Book Fair

Volunteers make our Friends of the Library Summer Book Fair a success! Your help with set-up, operation, and/or tear down of the 3-day sale supports our libraries. Serving at the book fair is also a great way to fill required service hours for school, scouts or just because you like us and want to give back to the community! Volunteers must be at least 12 years old. Most volunteers need the ability to:

  • lift and move boxes of books 
  • stand and/or kneel for long periods of time

A small number of seated volunteer opportunities are available. If you have concerns about your ability to volunteer, please note that in the "My Comments" area and we will do our best to accommodate.   

Shifts are available throughout the event with a varying number of volunteers needed for each day and time. We ask volunteers to serve a minimum of one 3-hour shift. Specific volunteer duties are determined based on volume and need. You may choose to sign up for multiple shifts and days if you like. We love to have volunteers who enjoy our Book Fair enough to stay longer. And there's a bonus...for each day that you volunteer you get a free bag of books! You will receive your bag to fill at the end of your shift unless you work the last shift of the day.

When Registering Multiple Volunteers: It is best to sign-up each volunteer individually so we have the appropriate contact information. However, if you need to register more than one person during a shift under the same e-mail address, please select the appropriate quantity and BE SURE to INCLUDE each individual's FIRST and LAST name in the comments box so we can include them on the event schedule.

To register as a volunteer, select from the available shifts below.

NOTE: Before submitting your sign-up, be sure to select the white box next to "Send me a confirmation email with an iCalendar (.ics) file" indicating you would like to receive an email confirmation of your volunteer shift(s). Don't forget to add it to your personal calendar!
