We’re big on books, but small on staff.
We’re known for being one of the best places in Austin to give back with your most valuable resource: time. The only way we can serve literally tens of thousands of children each year is with the enthusiastic support of community volunteers like you!

Eager to get started (or need a refresher)? Watch this by our friend Devo Carpenter from the Austin Public Library
Get started by attending a mandatory orientation for individuals and group leaders – that is, people who organize team volunteer efforts (group leaders of civic and corporate groups welcome–members of one-time teams will not need to attend orientations). We hold orientations the Second Thursday of each month at 11:00 at our office. Check back frequently as events are subject to change. Please sign up with the button below, then, select an upcoming orientation time.
If you are already a registered volunteer or part of a registered volunteer group, you can use the calendar below to search for upcoming activities.
