Volunteer Opportunities with The Cos Cob Friends
At their convenience, Volunteers check in with the Librarian and are assigned
one or more shelves to put in numerical or alphabetical order. No specific
schedule or required number of hours is required, but there are almost always
shelves needing attention.
One or more Volunteers assist a day or evening program for children or adults, including preparing and
setting up any hospitality. This requires arriving about 30 minutes before
scheduled start time.
Join the Board of Directors of The Friends. Board members serve a three-year term and help to plan and stage programs.
