Volunteer Opportunities

Chico Friends of the Library recognizes the hard work of its many volunteers. Every time a volunteer passes a 100-hour increment in service, his/her name is published in the CFOL newsletter. Volunteers achieving a 500-hour increment are honored at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Lunch.

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.
