Become a Volunteer

We’re thrilled that you’re interested in joining us as a volunteer!

IMG_0612Nothing gets accomplished at Book Harvest without the help of hundreds of hardworking volunteers each year, and there are lots of different ways to plug in to our team. In 2016 alone, the dollar value of volunteer hours contributed was $176,549. Thank you for your interest in sharing your time and talents with our team!

Our twice-monthly open book sorts are open to volunteers of all ages (youth volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). They are held on the second Saturday and fourth Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Drop-ins are welcome–no need to register in advance. You are welcome to stay for as little or as much of the book sort as you’d like, and there is no orientation or special knowledge required to participate. Just show up, and we’ll help you get started!

We also need volunteers to run book drives year round! Running a book drive is a simple, high impact activity for groups, families, children and teens, or anyone who wants to support our mission. Learn all you need to know about how to run a book drive and sign up online today!

If you are interested in learning about other ways volunteers are involved at Book Harvest or are looking for a more regular role, please join us for our monthly new volunteer orientation, held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:30 to 10 a.m. No registration is necessary. This is a great way to learn more about Book Harvest’s mission and programs and to discover all the ways volunteers are involved in our office and each of our programs.

And don’t forget to subscribe to our email list! We send out general information about what’s going on at Book Harvest and how to get involved about once a month. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to subscribe so you don’t miss our next update.

Thank you for your interest! Email us if you’d like to learn more about any of these opportunities.
