The Book Fairies is searching for a volunteer Greeter at our warehouse. The Greeter will welcome volunteers as they enter the warehouse and help direct them to the appropriate task. She/he will oversee volunteer sign ins, collect information from those delivering books and direct volunteers who are picking up books to make sure they get the correct book donations. Ideal volunteer is outgoing, organized, comfortable interacting with individuals with special needs and able to do light lifting (not mandatory). Requested hours are one to three days a week on either Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday from 10:00am to 12:30pm.
