Volunteer Opportunities

If you love books and book people, the Friends is a wonderful place to volunteer. We are looking for motivated people to help our community grow. Opportunities exist for those with varying interests, skills, and schedules.

Cashier at Book Stores: We have two bookstores, one at the Downtown Branch and one at the Tryon Branch. The stores are open Monday through Saturday and shifts are only a few hours long. Some volunteers do one set shift a week, some do a few times a month, some are just subs when there are cancellations. For more information, call David Bryant at 850-982-6067

Sort Books at our Warehouse: Every Thursdays from 9:00am-12:00pm we receive donations and sort, categorize, and box the books for sale in our stores and at the quarterly book sales. The warehouse is located at 325 Commerce Street off Barrancas Avenue. For more information, call Linda Williams at 850-450-2469.

Help at Quarterly Book Sales: Set up and/or cashier during our book sales, usually in two-hour increments over the weekend. For more information, call Linda Williams at 850-450-2469.
