Volunteers are essential to all aspects of BookSpring programs. From reading aloud to children and families, sorting book donations, and distributing books in our community, we have a volunteer opportunity fit for you!
How do I volunteer?
Step 1: Complete a New Volunteer Application
If you are new to BookSpring, please read these volunteer testimonials! If you want to stay in touch, please complete an application. We will capture your contact information and add you to our email list to be notified of ongoing and unique volunteer opportunities.
Please note that some positions require criminal background checks, and we cannot accommodate court-mandated community service obligations.
Step 2: Sign Up for Volunteer Assignments
We use SignUp to schedule most of our open assignments. If you have already signed up as a volunteer, you can go directly to this calendar to pick your preferred dates and times.
Step 3: Report Your Hours
After completing your assignment, please take our volunteer satisfaction survey here. Also, if you need to report on your service for your company or civic group or want us to keep track, log your hours for our records.
Your service hours help us with reports to funders that highlight your contribution to our mission!

Curbside & Delivery Services
If you have a vehicle and are comfortable picking up and delivering boxes of books, please apply and sign up to find out what opportunities might be coming up to help get books into the hands of program partners.
Group Book Sorting and Labeling
Groups of up to 12 can come into the BookSpring Warehouse to sort and label books. If you are a group leader, please sign up above, and then you can claim your preferred date for your entire group in the SignUp calendar. We recommend that every member in your group be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Contact us if you have any questions or need specific accommodations at (512) 472-1791 x 105.
We are looking for children and adults of all ages to create written or video Book Reviews for our website and social media! Book reviews can be of any book or topic you choose. Be creative and share your opinions on the books and stories that inspire you! Let’s talk about books! Help share your love of reading with other kids and families.
BookSpring is looking for kids and young adults to help us promote reading for fun and learning through read-aloud videos from people of all ages to spread a love of reading on our social media platforms, particularly our website, YouTube and Facebook. We’re particularly in need of books that have been included in Bibi’s Weekly Themes.
The Author Ambassador will be integral to our programs and public awareness efforts. They will be our trusted representatives at school, company, and community-based events, including public speaking, reading aloud, informational sessions, and other community-based events.
These above are not the only volunteer opportunities available, and assignments can change weekly! So, apply, sign up, record your hours, and help us build our community’s inclusive and diverse reading culture.
