This small book nook may not look like much, but it raises more than $40,000 per year for the programs of JCPL.


Do you love books? Do you like interacting with the public and giving them great deals on gently used books and cool literary merchandise? Are you looking for a way to give back to the library?

The Friends of the Jefferson County Public Library Gift and Book Shop is not only a great way to raise funds for our Library, it also affords volunteers the opportunity to commune with fellow book lovers and socialize with library patrons.

The Friends Gift and Book Shop operates seven days a week and is looking for a few steady volunteers who can give three hours of their time a week to a regular shift or who are willing to complete training to fill in the occasional shift as a substitute. Volunteers price books, arrange shelves, cashier, and work with the Jefferson County Library Foundation staff and volunteers on merchandising and marketing.
