Volunteer

Volunteering is a fun and easy way to be a part of the community at San Francisco Center for the Book. It is a great way to meet artists, crafters, book arts enthusiasts and collectors, and other creative people like yourself. As a non-profit organization, San Francisco Center for the Book relies on volunteers to bring their experiences, talents and skills, to help with a wide range of volunteer activities in the studios and at our many events. We are looking forward to working with you. Join us as a volunteer!
