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.

Support Online Sales

We sell donated books, CDs, DVDs, and video games through Amazon and eBay. We currently have an opening for Saturday volunteers to list donated materials on our Amazon and eBay stores. Must be available two to four times per month, have basic computer skills, good with grammar and can spot a typo a mile away. Email us to get started.

Learn about other Online Sales opportunities.

Help with Book Sales

We’re looking for volunteer Day Managers to help with a single day of our quarterly Book Sales. You’d be paired with a veteran volunteer to learn how a Book Sale is run from open to close. Once trained, you’d co-manage two sale days each year. If this sounds like a good fit for you, email us.

Of course there are many other ways to help make our quarterly Book Sales successful. See our Book Sales page for more information.

Social Media Marketing

Help us promote all the good things we do for the Mountain View Public Library! We need someone to create content for our Instagram account, including Lobby Shop promotions, Book Sale notices, volunteer recruitment, special events and more. You’d also manage ad campaigns and keep our profile current. If you’re a social media guru, we want to talk to you! Email us for details.

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.
