Volunteering at the Library and with the Friends
Looking for a Volunteer Opportunity--or Know Someone Who Might Be?
The Friends--an all-volunteer organization--carry out a variety of activities in support of the library and the Friends organization. These include helping to coordinate activities such as art talks and the Poets' Corner, serving on the Board or short-term committees, and helping with specific projects or tasks. We currently have a need for volunteers in the following areas:
Social Media help
Scholarship Committee members
If you are interested in volunteering with the Friends, email us at Info@gvlibraryfriends.org or contact Gerry Peterson, Vice President of the Green Valley/Sahuarita Friends.
Please indicate if you have a special area of interest or skills you'd like to use to help the Friends.

Volunteers to Help Move Books Urgently Needed
The Friends need volunteers to help with occasional transporting of donated books in Green Valley and at times to Tucson.
Volunteers must have their own transportation and be strong enough to lift boxes of books.
If you have time to give and would like to volunteer to help move books or to learn more, please email your name and telephone number to: Info@gvlibraryfriends.org
Social Media Coordinator Wanted
The Friends would like to enhance our presence on social media such as Facebook and Instagram. We'd like to improve our ability to share information about the libraries and the Friends with the community members. We have a Facebook presence but would like to expand what we are doing.
