Join the FUN!

We are currently recruiting volunteers for our BIG Fall Book Sale, which is taking place September 12-14 at Magnuson Park. We need assistance with pre-sale staging, post sale strike and everything in-between. We have a variety of roles to fill - cashiers, counters, line directors, stockers, heavy lifters and more. Volunteer activities for the sale run from September 11-14 and there are numerous shifts available. As a "thank you" for your efforts, all volunteers receive a $6 voucher that can be used towards purchases at the sale. If you are interested in volunteering for the sale, please send an email to

We run a busy operation here at Friends of The Seattle Public Library and we need all kinds of help to process the high volume of books and other materials that we receive every week.  Our daily to-do list includes a variety of interesting tasks such as scanning, sorting, boxing and more. Although some of our jobs may require slightly heavy lifting, we can happily accommodate anyone who is unable to do so. We like to think we have a job for every sensibility and capability. We work hard around here but we also have a lot of fun. We offer a bright, comfortable and upbeat environment, a friendly staff to assist you, fresh coffee and snacks and most of all, our deepest gratitude. Volunteers are critical to our mission and we make every effort to assure that your time with us is enjoyable.
