Volunteer with Telling Tales – year round and festival positions available

As the festival grows, so does our need for experienced volunteers. Whether it is helping out on the day of the event or assisting with event planning throughout the year, we are looking for enthusiastic and committed people to help us to grow our festival!

We are looking for people to fill a variety of volunteer positions at our three day Telling Tales Festival and our year round community events. Help inspire a love of reading with just a few hours of your time. Adults, friends, family over the age of 16 are welcome to participate! Volunteering at our festival qualifies for student hours- If you know a high school student please let them know.

We presently have two year round volunteer positions available and we will be posting Festival specific positions shortly.
