Program: Friends of the Library Bookstore and Sales

Duties: Friends of the Library operate a used book store downstairs at the main branch of the library. We also do outside sales and fundraisers. We are in need of sales help and book sorters on an ongoing basis. We are looking for someone to sell antique and collectible books. We also need a volunteer interested in fundraising, advertising and promotion. For July 14-16 we will need people to assist with our outdoor book sale and flea market in front of the Centennial library.

Skills Expected: You will need good communication skills and a general knowledge of books. All sales are cash so money skills are also needed. You may be required to move books in boxes as needed.

Orientation: A Friends volunteer will explain the job and answer any questions and work with you until you are comfortable with the job.

Training: One on one assistance available.

Benefits: Meet people, get great books and help your public library.
