Volunteer Opportunities

friends bookstoreIf you think helping the Friends is all about shelving books, think again. Here are some of the many ways you can help us:

  • Staff the Used Bookstore during the summer months (shelving books and helping customers).
  • Be a docent at one of the homes on the House and Garden tour.
  • Assume project manager leadership of one of our fundraising projects.
  • If you have computer skills, help with newsletter layout, electronic records documentation, or the membership database.
  • If you have writing skills, help writing newsletter articles.
  • Staff our booth at the annual Craft Fair, Marathon Weekend or other events.
  • Help with the semi-annual newsletter mailings.
  • If you have expertise in specific publications, such as children’s books, help us review incoming donations and freshen our collections.
  • If you have artistic flair, consider painting some Adirondack chairs or a table as a raffle prize.
  • If you have a strong back, help us move and store cartons of incoming donated books.
  • Help staff one of the many programs held by the Library, such as winter movie nights, reading hours for kids, or coaching a team for the Battle of the Books.

    Hi. We spoke in March about volunteer opportunities. Since the pandemic seems to be winding down around Schroon Lake, I thought I would get in touch. Thanks Dave

      The Friends Bookstore is always looking for volunteers. They are at the bookstore every Saturday through the summer from 10-2. Stop in and see them for further information.
