Membership & Volunteer

Membership  (to become a member or to renew your membership, please see below)

Friends of the Library organizations throughout the country are an invaluable pillar for local library services.  Here in Pacifica, our Pacifica Friends of the Library (PFOL) members donate hundreds of hours of volunteer time so that our financial resources can go directly to library services that benefit us all.  We hope that we can count on you to join.  The more members we have the better we can serve our community. We support the Pacifica Library services in many ways:

  • We provide funds for the Summer Learning Program that enables hundreds of local children to have fun while improving their reading skills.
  • We also fund Educational and Entertainment Programs for children, teens and adults.
  • We support a Homebound Delivery Program, which circulates books to our senior citizens.
  • We are now providing funds for Library Staff Development and Training that allows them to continue to attend classes and conferences.
  • We also purchase additional Equipment and Furniture (computers, chairs, etc.) for our libraries.
  • We hold at least 2 Book Sales throughout the year, offering Pacifica residents a selection of interesting books in excellent condition at very low prices.
  • Lastly, we publish periodic newsletters  to inform our members on library related activities and events such as: book sales, updates on the new library, change in library hours, and notification of upcoming events.

Book Sales: Before the actual sale: prepare the tables, place the books on the proper table.During the sale: tidy the tables, put orphaned books back into their proper place, assist customers to find what they are looking for, total up customer sales, act as cashier for sales.After the sale: pack up the books for the storage room, and take down tables.Each volunteer has the opportunity to purchase books ahead of the sale.

Publicity: Prepare flyers for events, prepare news articles for the Pacifica Tribune or other news outlets, and place posters and flyers at local businesses to help promote Friends’ events.

Book Nook: At the Sharp Park Library lobby, empty the Donation Box, sort the books following Book Nook guidelines, and place salable books in the proper categories in the book storage room.  Determine which books from the storage room should go to the Book Nook.  Tidy the shelves.

Fundraising: Help staff various fundraising events.  For example, the Fog Fest food booth.
