The Kings County Library in partnership with the Friends of the Library is looking for a book loving, people pleasing, community minded person to volunteer as our Book Sale Coordinator.
If libraries are your favorite place, you’ll be able to hang out at the library all day, with the fulfillment of knowing that you are helping The Friends of the Library coordinate the Annual Book Sales to benefit the Kings County Library Summer Reading Program and Special Library Projects.
The Book Sales are a time honored community event that allows our public to step into new worlds through literature, reach their aspirations through books that teach and inspire, or discover new writers that entertain and enlighten.
You’ll have the opportunity to work with library staff, Friends of the Library, and other volunteers. The Coordinator will be required to work in all aspects of the Book Sale, including cashiering, receiving/sorting book donations, and event set-up, and sales assistance. We are looking for a person with exceptional customer service and communication skills.
All volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation before beginning volunteering at the library
Volunteer orientations occur at Hanford Library in April & August.
Volunteer applications will be kept on file for six (6) months.
The Public Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information, knowledge, independent lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and the joys of reading for our diverse community.
Public libraries in California seek to engage the talents, skills and commitment of volunteers to serve the communities' information and literacy needs. Libraries offer a variety of skilled volunteer opportunities to make a meaningful contribution to library programs, operations, fundraising events and other community engagement functions. Skilled volunteers have opportunities to lead projects, work with teams of staff and volunteers, learn new skills, and have fun.
