Every year, the Newberry needs volunteers to make the Newberry Book Fair a success. Volunteering at the Newberry is a terrific way to learn more about this unique Chicago institution while meeting other enthusiastic volunteers.

Shifts are available throughout the run of the event, and volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks including greeting, restocking, checking, and squirreling. Download the Book Fair Volunteer Handbook to learn more.

Volunteer registration for the 2014 Book Fair is now closed. If you have any questions about Book Fair volunteering or the Book Fair, please contact Jo Anne Moore at (312) 255-3556 or moorej@newberry.org.
