Volunteer Opportunities

For every 100 volunteer hours, Chico Friends of the Library donates $25 to the library. That adds up when a typical quarter sees over 8,000 volunteer hours worked.

How Can I Help?


Our booksale coordinators can use more volunteers. We need help with sorting and pricing books, as well as lifting boxes that roughly weigh 15 pounds. Contact us for more information.

In the Library

See a staff member at the Chico Library reference desk for a volunteer application and for information about volunteer opportunities in the library.

Are you tech savvy?

Our website needs someone who is committed to maintaining it. We use the Joomla content management system. You will need to attend the monthly board meetings (on the third Tuesday of every month) to gather news and information for website updates.

Fundraising and Memberships

Contact us if you would like to participate in fundraising activities. Come to the monthly board meetings to volunteer for community outreach programs. Something new comes up each month.



Consider supporting us with an online donation, or mail a check to Chico Friends of the Library, PO Box 6952, Chico CA 95927.
