Volunteer with Book'em
January 2021 Update: We deeply appreciate the community's desire to volunteer during this time, but for the time being, we are no longer able to offer individual volunteering opportunities. In the next few months we may need volunteers' help with transporting large loads of books or processing books at home. If you are interested in these types of volunteer opportunities, please complete a volunteer application and we will contact you if the need arises. In the future, please check our volunteer signup calendar for available opportunities. Stay up to date with the latest information by checking back here and following us on our social media platforms.
Volunteers are our most valuable resource. Book’em has a volunteer base of 300+ community members who serve as reading role models in local elementary schools and early learning centers, prepare donated books for distribution and fulfill book requests, help out in the office, and assist with special events. Learn more about all of our programs here.
Become a Reading Role Model
Research shows that reading aloud to children greatly increases their ability to learn to read and build essential literacy skills. If you are interested in serving as a reading role model volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application or email email@example.com to learn more.
Note: We are currently unable to offer group volunteer opportunities.
Volunteer groups make an enormous impact. Hundreds (sometimes even thousands!) of books can be sorted and processed in just a few hours of group service. Book'em hosts groups of up to 20 volunteers throughout the work week to help sort, clean, stamp, shelve, & box up donated books. This is a fun opportunity for businesses, civic groups, clubs, teams, and more to serve together while doing good in the community. Evening and weekend opportunities are available upon request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in bringing your group to volunteer.
