Join 500 Other Volunteers Who Give Their Time to the Library

Volunteer with us at the Summer Used Book Sale, in our Red Chair Bookshop or in our book donation sorting operation.  

  • Red Chair Bookshop volunteers work one, 3-hour shift per week on a year-round basis. You must be great with customers and willing and able to move books about the store. Cashiering is also part of this role. We train you! 
  • Book Sorting and Amazon Uploading volunteers work in our warehouse sorting operation at Central Library. Small groups come together for 2-3 hours. We train you to sort books by subject, condition and value. This is a very physical role! Our volunteers love chatting about the latest find from a box they've unpacked. Amazon Uploading volunteers enter books into the Amazon database that have been chosen by the book sorters to sell.
  • Used Book Sale volunteers come once or twice a year to help set up, operate and close down the book sale events. 

For information about Book Sorting, Amazon Uploading and Red Chair Bookshop opportunities, contact Andrea Hamilton via email or via phone at 720-865-1723.

For information about the Summer Used Book Sale volunteer opportunities the week of June 3 - June 8, contact Gretchen Roberts via email or at 720-865-1705.

We also host corporate and large groups in book sorting! View the description of this opportunity here.

  • You can bring up to 10 people from your organization or business to work in our book sorting space for a day. We will teach you how we sort books by condition, subject and value. Connect with your coworkers while helping the Friends Foundation raise funds for the library!

Note: The online signup for the Summer Used Book Sale will be available in May of 2019. If you have a large group or you would like to be added to our volunteer list for the book sale please contact Gretchen Roberts.
