Year-Round Book Donation Worker at Central Library

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on May 1, 2014

Do you like browsing in used bookstores? Come share that joy! The Friends of the Arlington Public Library hold semi-annual book sales to raise money to support a variety of Library activities, including the summer reading program for children and the community read, Arlington Reads.

Preparing for the sales is a year-round task. Donated books, magazines, and media items are unpacked, sorted, priced, and re-packed for the next sale. In addition, the donation processing team keeps the used bookstore stocked with materials that sell for $1.00 or less.

Eight to ten hours of training are provided Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We need people able to lift heavy boxes and move heavy carts of materials who also can follow established guidelines for pricing items. We ask for a six-month commitment that involves working 5-6 hours a week. Those 18 years and older must consent to a background check.

This opportunity is sponsored by: Arlington Public Library
