About Friends of Vancouver Community Library (FOVCL)
Supporting our Vancouver Community Library-- it’s what we do!
We support the Vancouver Community Library through innovative volunteer activities.
Including but not limited to the following:
In just a few words, this is what FOVCL is all about. You and I and dozens of other citizens appreciate our Vancouver Community Library and want to help it live up to its emphasis on “community.” We are the community and we appreciate all the many offerings available at our marvelous Vancouver Community Library.
We want you and we want your participation, your ideas, your time, your talent, your treasure (occasionally) as a FOVCL member. Join us at our general monthly meetings (3rd Tuesday of the month, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.) and as a volunteer including Booknook, website, Facebook, Early Learning Center, Executive Committee, FirstFriday, special events, receptions, and ad hoc committees.
We work hard; we have fun; we get a lot of satisfaction from interacting with community members, library staff, and program presenters.
We rely on volunteers to help sort books, facilitate Internet sales, staff the Booknook, and help with our yearly book sales. No experience necessary! We will train you and ask only one three hour shift per week. You get to learn Retail Sales skills, meet and serve people in your community and have fun reading and talking about books.
