  4. Floaters keep the books organized during the book sale.

Book Shop

Be a part of our year-round Book Shop found in the lobby of the Longmont Library. Tasks include selecting and pricing books, stocking shelves, and more.

Book Sorters

Sorts books according to genre in the Friends Sorting Room. Best if you are an analytical thinker, organized and like to follow directions.


A Friends Ambassador will make a 2-3 minute presentation at the beginning of Library events sponsored by the Friends. Then provide a table filled with Friends informational materials for people who are interested in becoming Friends Members.

Everything Else…

BOX PICKER-UPPERS: We store books for our monthly book sales in beer boxes — which means we need *a lot* of beer boxes. Boxes need to be picked up and delivered to our sorting room, on a regular basis, as often as you desire. Training takes less than five minutes.

OFFICE HELP: General office support such as make phone calls, stuff envelopes, make copies. Just to let you know, we do not have an office space. However, if you are interested in helping in this area, your name will be placed on our Office Help list and you will be called when such a need arises.
