Volunteering

Newberry volunteers work at Book Fair.
Newberry volunteers assist in everything from special catalog duties to preparing for the Book Fair.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Newberry. There are often many volunteer opportunities available, and we make a careful effort to match your skills and interests to the open positions. At other times there may not be any demand for volunteers, so it may take some time until a placement is available. Our goal is to meet the needs of the various departments while affording volunteers the opportunity to do enjoyable and satisfying work. To find out if we have an opportunity for you, please contact volunteers@newberry.org.

If nothing is available or of interest, keep in mind that our annual Book Fair requires a tremendous volunteer effort and is a great way to get to know the Newberry. Find out more about Book Fair Volunteering.
