Volunteer – Make a Difference

We love our volunteers and our volunteers love the Library.  Come support the Library and make new friends.  There are many ways to contribute.

Sort Donated Materials

Sorting our donations is the first step in raising funds to support the Library. We have teams of volunteers who process incoming donations of books and media in 2-hour shifts once a week. Visit our Sorting Donations page for more information.

Assist with Lobby Shop Sales

We have the nicest faces in our shop and we’d be happy to add yours! If you are happy to meet friendly people in the Library, this might be the place for you. For more details, see our Lobby Shop Volunteers page.

Help with Book Sales

There are many different ways to help make our quarterly book sales successful without making a long-term commitment. If you don’t have a lot of time on a regular basis but would still like to be involved, this would be a good area to investigate. See our Book Sales page for more information.

Support Online Sales

We sell donated books, CDs, and DVDs online via Amazon and eBay. Work in this area involves listing the items on those sites and processing the orders once they sell. If you enjoy looking through a variety of books and are comfortable with using a computer, this group is for you. Visit Support Online Sales to find out more.
