Volunteer Opportunities

Portland Public Library relies on a network of volunteers, both behind the scenes and interacting with the community. We have a variety of short- and long-term opportunities for volunteers who want to get involved.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with our second-hand bookstore at the Main Library (5 Monument Square). Proceeds from the bookstore help support our collections as well as our many programs, which we offer free to the public.

Our goal is to keep the bookstore open from 10am-4pm, Monday-Saturday. General sales experience is helpful, but training on our sales system will be provided. If you have the interest and time to commit, please complete our Google form. Interviews will be take place in November and early December of 2016.

Thank you for your interest in helping Portland Public Library!
