New Volunteers

Please complete a new volunteer application. We will capture your contact information and add you to a weekly volunteer email list. 


Please note that some positions require criminal background checks. Unfortunately, by policy we cannot accommodate court-mandated community service obligations.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities 

There are in-office book sorting/labeling shifts every day of the work week, with expanded evening and weekend hours. You must sign up via the SignUp Calendar. These are open to both individuals and to groups, but make sure you reserve an open slot for yourself and for all your group members if applicable. 

The SignUp Calendar is quick and easy and sends reminders of your desired placements. Please make sure to check your email often leading up to your scheduled session, as the schedule is subject to interruptions for holidays, special events, summer hours, and unexpected cancellations.

If you’re ready to volunteer, view our calendars of upcoming activities and sign up to volunteer today!

Please sign up at least a week in advance so that we can plan the best experience for you!

Volunteer Training

BookSpring offers special training twice a year. Next Read Aloud Training Orientation is Tuesday, January 28 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. Light snacks and coffee will be provided. You are welcome and encouraged to bring a copy of a children’s book you love, as we will be sharing and reading them during the training!


Those interested in helping our program partners offsite, such as reading aloud to groups, supporting motivational activities, and special weekend or nighttime events should inquire of staff directly.
