Fund Raising

Our most important work is raising funds for the Libraries through ongoing sales in the Serendipity Bookstore, through online purchases at AbeBooks and through our periodic book sales.

These activities are generously supported by Friends members and the general public and provide the Libraries with funds that are urgently needed in these times of severe budget shortages. Keep up-to-date with information by reading our monthly newsletter.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed toVolunteer help with the unpacking and sorting of donated books. Most of this activity takes place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

We also need your help when we set up for our Book Sales. The more hands to help, the faster the setup and the lighter the work for all.

We have occasional openings for regular shifts in the Serendipity Bookstore. Please call us at 707-269-1995 or email friends@eurekafrl.org if you can help with any of these activities.
