Books for Keeps has the following volunteer opportunities:

Ongoing Opportunities

We need experienced marketing/communications professionals to help us write press releases, blog posts, newsletters and more.

Newsletter Technician
We need a volunteer experienced with HTML and/or MailChimp to create and send our monthly newsletter.

We occasionally need corporate legal advice. This is a low-frequency volunteer opportunity that will make a big difference to our organization.

Book Pickup Volunteers
We need help picking up book donations in Athens and many other northeast Georgia towns. This is a low-frequency opportunity that requires the ability to lift boxes of books and either hold them in your home or drive them to our sort room.

Box Pickup Volunteers
Barnes & Noble will donate boxes provided we send someone to pick them up around 3pm each day. Can you adopt a day?

Book Inspection & Sorting
We hold book sorting days several times a year. To be notified of our next one, sign up for our Volunteer Opportunities newsletter. We can sometimes hold a private sorting session if your organization or group would like to work together.

Book Drive Assistance
We have several large book drives coming up, and always need people who can clear the collection bins during the drive and bring the books to our sort room.

Contact us at if you’d like to get involved. You can also subscribe to our Volunteer Opportunities newsletter.
