Friends Volunteer Application

The Friends is a membership organization which relies mainly on the generosity of it’s many volunteers to get things done. Through the great effort of these fine individuals, we run the Friends Down Under used bookstore in the lower level of the Woods Branch of the library, hold three large used book sales a year, answer the call from library staff to help at events, and organize and implement our own activities throughout the year. We are always in need of additional volunteers, as we actively work to expand store hours and to increase participation in all aspects of its operations. Our success relies on the blending of many skills and talents – so we have a place for you!

Please won’t you consider joining us in our journey to support the library with funds raised from all our sales, and to strengthen our advocacy for the Grosse Pointe Public Library? Simply fill out this form and submit it, or call (313) 343-2074 ext. 204 for more information.
