There are many ways to volunteer with the 
Friends of the Costa Mesa Libraries

If you have a talent, we can probably use it!  Our Friends group has two bookstores,  in addition to our newsletter,  website, and working with our Friends of the Library Board. 

And each of these divisions includes a variety of opportunities to contribute your time and energy.  All volunteers must be members of the Friends of the Costa Mesa Libraries.  Just fill out our Volunteer Application and send it to us.

Volunteer to serve on the Friends board.  Board members should be those who feel a strong commitment for service to the organization. A board member serves as president, vice president for membership, secretary or treasurer or on one or more of the committees, including  bookstores, advocacy and publicity, newsletter, website, programs, and others as needed.

Special Events.  Some people are too busy to volunteer on a regular basis, but can usually be depended upon to help with special events that occur only occasionally. This may be for book sales, special programs and more.
