Volunteers of the Long Beach Public Library are recruited to supervise the Friends' bookstore, working a regular weekly schedule usually a 2-4 hour shift on a specific day of the week. The bookstore is located in the lobby of Main Library. All proceeds support the purchase of new materials for the library. Main Library Bookstore Hours
Call the bookstore at (562) 570-6415 prior to visiting to be sure it is open. We strive to be open the same hours as the library, but with an all volunteer crew, sometimes we are short on staff.
You can help by donating your clean and gently used books, recent magazines, and movies. Just bring the items to the Main Library lobby, and then ask for a tax receipt if you need one. We sort and distribute donations to benefit all Long Beach Public Library locations.
We are always looking for volunteers willing to serve one shift a week in the bookstore. If you are interested, let us know by email email@example.com or call (562) 570-7500 and ask for the Volunteer Services Librarian.
