The Friends of Lancaster Public Library will host the BIG Book Sale at F&M College Alumni Sports Fitness Center! Be among FRIENDS when you volunteer for a shift (or more!) DURING the Sale! We need hundreds of volunteers for an event the size of the BIG Book Sale. There is a job for almost everyone.

  • If you like to organize, we need one or two people to serve as Volunteer Coordinators.
  • If you’re young and active, we need people to help buyers get purchases to their cars.
  • If you need to sit down, we need people to count books and receive money.
  • If you like to browse among the books, we need people to keep the tables orderly.
  • If you like a fast pace, we need people to resort books and get them back on the tables so more can be sold.
And so much more! The BIG Book Sale is a great short-term volunteer opportunity for individuals, families, companies, youth groups, and others. Shifts are a reasonable length, but they can be tailored to your needs. We would love to have you join us and will be happy to work with you to find a job suits you. Ready to get started?
