Bookstore Volunteers Needed

The Friends have an immediate need for volunteers to provide sales and customer service support at both the Civic Center and Mission Branch Bookstores. There are available shifts that need to be filled or interested parties can just serve as subs. New volunteers may begin working once their background and fingerprint checks have been cleared through the City’s Human Resources Department. If you can help, please call Cheri Noel at 760-435-5564.
