Volunteering

Love Books?
Looking for a place to volunteer for a few hours a week?

The Friends of the Virginia Beach Public Library have been raising funds and supporting Virginia Beach Public Library since 1976. Friends Volunteers run the Friends Book Shop, sort and sell books, and assist with special events.

We are always looking for friendly volunteers to work in the shop, either with regular shifts, or as substitute shopkeepers. No experience needed- just a love of reading, and a desire to provide good customer service to our community. Retail experience doesn’t hurt, of course.

We also welcome volunteers to help us with sorting and special events. Materials must be sorted before they are sent to our Book Shop, and other locations. Special Events volunteers assist us with events such as our city wide book sales.

Interested in volunteering? You must join the Friends to qualify:

Download a Membership Form. Include a check made payable to FVBPL. It can be dropped off at any of our locations or mail to:

(Membership Forms are also available at any library location)
Please indicate your desire to volunteer. A member of the Friends will contact you.
