Kids' Book Festival

Thank you for your interest in making our Kids' Book Fest a huge success!

Volunteers make everything we do possible. Without you we cannot get books back out into the community and HPL resources into new lives!

 • Cashier
 • Selling Concessions 
 • Volunteer Registration and Check-Out
 • Floor Attendant
 • Welcome Attendant
 • Tally Attendant
 • Membership Services and Sign Up
 • Book Valet and Helping Customers to their Car

Physical Limitations: Most duties entail physical activity, including lifting and unpacking boxes of books. If you want to volunteer, but you have physical limitations please email Rose at rose@friendsofhpl.org and she will work to place you in a position that works for you.

Volunteer Perks!: Volunteers will be provided water and snacks, and get to take home 1 book for every 2 hours of service.

Attire: Please wear close-toed shoes and comfortable attire, our book sales are a fun and active way to get involved with the community. Enthusiasm and high-fives welcome!

Parking: There are paid for and free parking options available around The Health Museum, and there is Metro access close to the museum as well. We do not provide parking reimbursement.
