Friends of the Phoenix Public Library

Friends' Place Bookstore

Attention bibliophiles! How would you like to volunteer in the hippest charity bookstore in town?!

The Friends of the Phoenix Public Library are seeking a few reliable volunteers to help staff our Friends' Place Bookstore at Burton Barr Central Library. The Friends' Place is a unique used bookstore and gift shop located on the 1st floor of Phoenix's central library downtown. Proceeds from the store are used to support the programs & services at Burton Barr Central Library. YOUR time allows us to use more of every dollar spent at the Friends' Place for the library.

We're looking for folks who enjoy working with the general public, are able to use a computer, and who are able to stand for at least 3 hours and lift up to 20 lbs. Naturally, customer service or retail experience is a plus; but we're definitely willing to teach these skills to you as well. A six-month committment is preferred.

Want to join the team? Please contact us to learn what shifts are available ...
