Looking for A Few Good
The Friends' Bookstore inside the Rochester Public Library is run entirely by volunteers. Proceeds from store sales provide vital support to the Library. Last year, the Friends' Bookstore gave the Library $70,000.
In the Winter, the store is open 7 days a week. We are in need of more volunteers.
Bookstore volunteers do a variety of chores during their three hour shift such as: shelving new books and culling old stock, keeping certain areas alphabetized and most importantly, ringing up sales!
One of the BEST parts of the job is simply chatting with our customers about books, books, books! Come join our fun and dedicated team of library boosters.
Please inquire if you are interested and have some regular time in your schedule to commit. Contact volunteer coordinator Marilyn Campbell at 328-2341.
