Bookstore Volunteers Needed!


When the new Branch opens in mid-January, the Friends of MH-Hillcrest Branch Library will be operating a bookstore that will sell donations made to the Library.  We are in need of volunteers to staff the Bookstore so that it can be open as many hours as possible during the week.

Our initials plans are to be open:

  1. Monday, Thursday and Friday from 10 - 3

  2. Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1 - 6

  3. Saturday from 10 - 4

Volunteers will work in two or three hour shifts.  We hope that we will have community members who are willing to work on a regular basis, but we welcome volunteers who can work some staggered shifts based on their schedules and our scheduling needs. 

We would like to develop schedules on a three month basis, so now we are looking for those who are willing to make a commitment to staff the store starting when we open in mid-to-late January 2019 through April 2019. 

Volunteers will be in charge of book sales during their shifts and when not busy with sales, they will shelve new donations, remove books that have been on the shelves too long and generally keep the store tidy.  Ample training will be provided!  If a volunteer is interested, he or she might also be cross-trained to do other tasks related to book sales. 

If you would like to volunteer, please send an email with your contact information to library92103@gmail.com.  The volunteer coordinator will contact you to discuss scheduling options.
