Friends of the London Public Library

Volunteer Reception on December 2nd 2022

On Friday December 2, 2022 the Friends hosted a reception for the volunteers from the store and warehouse. This was the first in-person reception since 2019 and was well attended with approximately 35 to 40 people in attendance. There was good representation from the Friends Executive and the Library staff. The refreshment table offered the Friends Punch (always a favourite), fruit platter, cheese & crackers plus a delicious chocolate and vanilla cake.
A big thank you should go to Deb Lowry and Scott Curoe for their great organization, especially sending out the invitations, buying and wrapping the gifts and planning the entertainment, which as usual was lots of fun.
This was a good opportunity for all the volunteers to mingle with others and to meet some of the newer volunteers. I am sure everyone there had a great time.
I would also like to thank Carmen, Deb and Scott for their help with the setup and cleanup, I very much appreciated all the help.

The Friends of the London Public Library offers interesting volunteer opportunities working in our Book Store and during the huge Annual Book Sale held each October.

The Friends Book Store, located in the Central Library, Citi Plaza Mall, is open Monday through Saturday. Volunteers work one or more two and a half hour shifts. Volunteering at the Book Store provides an opportunity to socialize as many customers come to the Store same day each week. It also provides the chance to make new friendships with the volunteers on your shift. We offer discounts up to 50% on our already bargain prices for books, music CDs, DVD movies, games and puzzles. Most importantly you will be supporting your vibrant Public Library as sales from the Book Store are donated to the Library.

Volunteer opportunities are also available during the Friends huge Annual Book Sale. This three-day event offers thousands of books, music CDs and movies, up to two transport trucks of material at rock bottom prices. Volunteers work one or more three-hour shifts helping to set up the sale and keep the tables stocked. As a reward, volunteers are invited to attend Preview Night, where they get first crack at browsing and buying sale material. How to Register? Check back early September when Volunteer openings are posted.
