The Bookmark Needs Your (Volunteer) Help!

The Bookmark Bookstore is seeking volunteers and we’re hoping you can help.

As a member of FOPL, you’ve already demonstrated that you’re interested in supporting our public library system. In addition to your membership donation, perhaps you could spare a few hours a week to help out at the store.

Our volunteers do a variety of chores during their three hour-per-week shifts, such as: receiving, unpacking and pricing donations; shelving new books and culling old stock; keeping certain areas alphabetized; general upkeep, and most importantly – ringing up sales. One of the best parts of the job is simply chatting with our customers and other staffers about books, books, books!

The next time you’re in the store shopping, take a few minutes to talk with our volunteers and see first-hand what they do. We are all very proud to be a part of the Bookmark’s operation.

To get more information or to join our ranks, drop in during open hours or call the store manager at (510) 444-0473.
