Without volunteers, there would be no Friends of the Public Library.
Through the sale of books and other media, Friends help raise funds that support our mission and numerous library programs.
WHAT VOLUNTEERS DO
Volunteers sort, price, and arrange books for the book sales or work in the Bookshop. The Friends’ Coordinator trains new volunteers and helps them find the right niche.
All volunteering takes place at the Main Library during the day. Volunteers receive free parking.
In additional to the regular roles at the library, volunteers are also needed for special events and specific tasks, such as membership database maintenance and social media efforts. There is flexibility in the time and location of these volunteer opportunities.
Because of possible conflicts of interest, book dealers are not accepted as volunteers.
Like all City of Albuquerque volunteers, a background check is required.
