Interested in volunteering with us?

Friends always need help with preparation tasks for book sales. Working for a book sale is a great way to meet other Friends supporters in our community and it’s fun. Please contact us and let us know if you are able to help us with sorting, organizing, and pickups. Due to COVID, we require all volunteers to be fully vaccinated.
