Tips for Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer at the Authors & Artists Fair

Please send an email to telling us how you would like to help!

Some volunteers are needed from 8:30am-9:30am for setup. Others are needed for two-hour shifts from 9:30am-11:30am, 11:30-1:30pm, 1:30-3:30pm, and 3:30-5:30pm as credit card cashiers and roving author/artists hospitality helpers. Credit card cashiers greet people as they come in the door. Visitors are encouraged to donate $1-$5 for the summer reading program; for $1 they get a bag, and for $5 they get their choice of 2 children's books. Cashiers also run "Square"-type credit card readers and tally sales (which is not as difficult as it sounds). Hospitality helpers bring bottled water and VISA slips to authors/artists and offer to watch tables while authors/artists take short breaks. Please arrive for your shift 5-15 minutes early so that you can learn your duties from the previous volunteer.

Thanks for helping the Lane Library League!
