Friends Membership coordinator - Do you have leadership and or marketing experience? Would you like to help with ongoing operations for our wonderful support organization? The Friends need you! Please contact www.membership@friendsmvl.org for more information.

After Hours Setup Crew - Twice a month, we hold special evening events and we need your help to transform our main reading room into an inviting space for 250-300 people! We're looking for strong, able-bodied folks to help move/carry/lift (around 50 lbs) and setup tables and chairs. We'll pair you up and show you what to do; in exchange, you'll get choice seating for the event and play an integral role in helping to sustain these special programs. Time commitment: approx 1-2 hrs/month

If you have particular skills or experience which you'd like to bring to one of our programming areas, feel free to email us about ways to get involved! Here's a sample of the programs we offer:

  • Gardening classes & a seed-lending library
  • Computer classes and 3D Modeling & Printing
  • Podcast recording, production, and editing
  • Cooking, pickling, "fermentation nation" workshops
  • Writing & storytelling workshops

Community Service: For students seeking a set number of community service hours, we require at least 3 weeks of notice prior to your deadline. We have limited opportunities, so the earlier you contact us, the better your chances.

Note: unfortunately, we do not have the resources to accommodate court-appointed community service volunteers.
