Become a Bookshop Volunteer!

The Friends Bookshop is much appreciated by our community and the library as all sales go directly to the library for items and programs not in their budget…We are in need of more volunteers to work in the bookshop so we may continue to keep the shop open every day but Sunday.  If you like working with people and love books, we need your help. Shifts are 3 hours once a week minimum…contact a volunteer in the bookshop or email us if you can donate a few hours a week to your community. We’ll train you to clean and file books and work a simple cash register. Email: 

The Friends Bookshop SIDEWALK SALES will be held the first Saturday of each month. 10am – 3pm on the front lawn of the John Steinbeck Library.  Rain postpones the sale until the SECOND Saturday of the month.
