Volunteers are the heart and soul of this community effort to solve the book gap. The Children’s Book Bank welcomes many types of volunteers—from individuals and groups who have two hours to give to those who can help a few hours each week or month to those who have professional skills to contribute or want projects of their own. Every helping hand allows us to serve more children.
How Volunteers Help
Our book cleaning volunteer sessions offer a great opportunity to reminisce about favorite books and bond with other volunteers. Groups of 6-12 volunteers help prepare donated books for kids by cleaning covers, erasing scribbles and taping torn pages. These sessions are also family-friendly for children 6 and up. Volunteers make a big impact on kids in need and have fun with their team!
A typical volunteer session includes:
- CBB overview
- Book cleaning instructions
- Work session
- Wrap up / clean up
Every book bag given to a child has been assembled by a volunteer trained to create a special collection of books from our inventory of donated books. If you've attended three book sprucing sessions and would like to get more involved please click here to schedule a training session or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
