The Friends of the Brown County Library cannot raise its funds or manage its activities without the generous donations of time by our many dedicated volunteers.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help us fulfill and expand our mission to help the Library. All volunteer efforts, large or small, support literacy and learning in the Brown County area for all walks of life and all ages, infants to seniors. Many of our Friends happily volunteer their time on a regular basis for the social fellowship and the satisfaction of contributing to the greater cause of literacy and education for all.
We invite you to review the volunteer options listed below. For more information or to contact our volunteer coordinator, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a particular event of interest, please add it in the email’s subject line.
The Big Book Sales are the Friends’ primary fundraisers. The events are held twice per year, Spring and Fall, at the Central Library lower level. Although you don't need to be a Friends member to volunteer for many tasks, Friends members are automatically placed on the volunteer mailing list, and receive a letter 6-7 weeks prior to the sale outlining volunteer opportunities and how to sign up.
If you are not already a Friends’ member, we encourage you to join to be among the first to learn of the opportunities available.
Or visit www.bigbooksale.org.
Volunteer opportunities include:
Shifts are usually 2-3 hours, and all but cashiers will spend much of the time on their feet. We are always most in need of cashiers, transporters, and take down helpers.
We need YOU to help make our Big Book Sale run smoothly! If you are a member of the Friends, please consider volunteering for one of many positions, including cashier, organizer, team leader, transporter, wristband checker, and more. Each volunteer will receive 5 FREE BOOKS as our way of saying “Thank you!”
