Volunteer Opportunities

Footnotes is staffed by Friends member volunteers who open the shop to customers more than 200 hours each month. New volunteers are welcome, just mark your Friends membership application or ask at the Footnotes desk. 


The black box in front of the shop is always available for receiving donations. Friends volunteers will also provide pick up for large numbers of donated books. 

Funds raised by the Friends through Footnotes and Book Sales are used to support library projects and programs.
