Volunteers Needed

The Midland Friends of Libraries and Literacy Book Store

at 2305 W. Michigan is in great need of volunteers to help this great

non-profit literacy agency.

We take books donated by the public and make them available in our bookstore for an affordable price. Our proceeds, then, go to literacy projects throughout West Texas, supporting libraries, helping area organizations, programs, schools and students with book donations, and providing book scholarships for MC and UTPB students. With summer vacations and some of our regular volunteers off traveling, we are finding it hard to keep up with the bounty of books we are receiving. Be a part of this worthwhile effort. You can chose to donate as much or as little time as you wish. We are open from 9-Noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays. You can help with book processing, shelving and straightening. If you need a less active or a sit-down job, we can use people to mark books and help us with Amazon sales. These jobs are not strenuous and you get to meet great people and see great books. Teachers, consider helping us a couple of hours and get a discount on books for your classroom. This is a great volunteer activity for retired individuals, older teens, college students, teachers off for the summer or if you have a little time you want to give to a worthy cause. Even if you are still working, you can volunteer on Saturday mornings to help keep this worthwhile non-profit going.

To volunteer:
Come to the Bookstore at 2304 W. Michigan on Wednesday or Saturday from 9-12 to speak with us and we will show you around. You can also call 432.682.2999 and leave a message and we will get back with you on Wednesday or Saturday.   

The Midland Friends of Libraries and Literacy Bookstore would like to thank all active military and veterans . Your service and sacrifices are greatly appreciated. We currently participate with a group that sends books to soldiers overseas. If you are part of a group that helps soldiers and could use some books for them, please come by the bookstore and talk with us.

World War II Collection

The Bookstore just received a wonderful and large collection of books on World War II. Many are nearly new and all are well taken care of with covers on them. You can check them out on Wednesday and Saturday from 9:00 -12:00 during our regular business hours. Historians will love this collection!
