Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Bookmarks!


Join us at the next New Volunteer Orientation on Wednesday, December 18 at 5:30 pm in the bookstore. All are welcome to attend and learn more about getting involved at Bookmarks.


There are a variety of ways to get involved at Bookmarks:
Author events • Authors In Schools chaperone
Book Build processing • Bookstore help
Errands and deliveries • Festival of Books & Authors
Office & administrative tasks • Storytime reader


Bookmarks relies on volunteers for help with events, outreach, and day-to-day operations. We are incredibly grateful to all of our wonderful volunteers who believe in and support our mission. With their help, we were able to reach over 12,000 students through Authors in Schools in 2018, and Bookmarks expanded its outreach efforts to host over 15 community events in the bookstore each month, including storytimes, author events, and lecture nights. 

Please note that minors are unable to volunteer at Bookmarks without an adult guardian present. High school students who would like to get involved at Bookmarks are invited to join our Teen Advisory Council.

All interested participants are required to complete an in-person orientation and an online background check prior to volunteering. Send an email to Bookmarks' Office & Volunteer Specialist, Cailey Neuschaefer, at hello@bookmarksnc.org for more information.
