Volunteer Opportunities

The FNHL needs volunteers to help at our periodic book sales in the following categories:
Prior-day Sale Setup: Mostly hauling books, and some light sorting (Friday, usually 12PM-3PM)
Book Sale Monitor/Cashier: Watching the sale area, assisting customers, checkout/cashiering, condensing and neatening rows of books (Saturday, 8:15AM-2:00PM, or any portion thereof)
Book Sale Takedown: Removing and storing unsold books (Saturday afternoon at closing, about 1.5 hours)

We also provide assistance to the library for programs they put on, some of which we sponsor and many for which we provide refreshments (day or evening).

To become a volunteer, please email us or leave us a voicemail message with your contact number, availability and preferences. You can always volunteer for part of a day such as doing checkout for a couple of hours in the morning, or helping us take down at the end of a book sale. You do need to be registered with the library first for insurance purposes – there is some minor paperwork involved. We can also accept teen volunteers who need community service credit. Please contact us for details or any questions you may have.
