We welcome all the help we can get, so please get in touch if you have questions or want to know more about any of the positions listed below.

Section HeadsSection head jobs need to be filled early. If you are interested in being more involved this is a great short term commitment that really benefits the school and is a great opportunity to meet others in our school community! This job means you organize the section as the books are put on the shelves. You’ll guide volunteers on how to shelve and price books in that section. We need section heads for: History/Canadiana/Politics Fiction (shared lead) Children’s section (shared lead) Biography Mystery/Science fiction
Other RolesSORTING: Putting the books in boxes by category, e.g., hobbies, mystery, children's books. SET UP: Physically setting up shelves and tables (muscles requested)! SHELVING & PRICING: Shelving and pricing the sorted books with coloured dot stickers. CHILDREN'S DAY: Helping students choose their books or working the cash. VOLUNTEER NIGHT AND SALE TO PUBLIC: Cashiers, rearranging and restocking bookshelves. CLEAN-UP: Boxing unsold books, folding and stacking tables (muscles required again!)
NOTE: Please do not sign up teens for official volunteer shifts; they are, however, welcome to come and help out! Young children are not allowed during sorting/collection as there are many stacked boxes of heavy books
