Enthusiastic Little Free Library Stewards!
We want to show them some love!

We need your help to keep great books accessible to communities 24/7. As a volunteer, you will visit this Little Free Library in Oakland to distribute books once a month. This book-sharing box needs any kind of book, mostly children's books.

We're looking for a volunteer who can commit to distributing books to this Little Free Library for 3 months. We can suggest free or low-cost sources of books - or, if you're a bookworm yourself, you can distribute your own. Approximately 10-15 books are needed each month.

Register here to get started: https://givepul.se/pb04dv. After you register, we will send tips and resources. Little Free Library staff and the Little Free Library caretaker (the steward) can answer your questions along the way.

The flexibility can't be beat: visit the Little Free Library whenever it fits in your schedule, as long as it’s being restocked monthly.

Purpose: By keeping Little Free Libraries filled with books, you are helping to build community, inspire readers, and expand book access.

Responsibilities:

  • Collect books, especially children's books.
  • Travel to the Little Free Library to distribute books once a month for 3 months.
  • Use the Little Free Library app to check-in and track how many books you shared.
  • Submit an Impact form in our volunteer hub at the end of the 3 month commitment.

Resources Available: We will help you get started with some tips for book sources and using our Little Free Library app.

Qualifications:

  • Love Little Free Libraries and supporting book access!
  • Willing to collect or donate books for 3 months
  • Have access to transportation to take books to the Little Free Library
  • Great at communicating by email or phone

Benefits: Experience the satisfaction of getting books into the hands of more readers. You’ll get a free Little Free Library t-shirt after you record your impact in the Team LFL online hub!

Supervision & Support: You can connect with the Little Free Library steward or Brianna, the Community Engagement Manager, to ask questions. We also offer virtual Q&A sessions for volunteers.
