Volunteer With The Bookshelf

THE BOOKSHELF is a fantastic not-for-profit event that works to unite readers with authors and provide fun reading-related craft items. It is our goal to help celebrate Canadian talent and provide a festive atmosphere where readers can meet their next favourite author.

However, events such as The Bookshelf cannot run on good-will alone. We need to rely on volunteers to help us both behind the scenes and on the day of the event.


We traditionally require extra help in a number of different ways:

  • guiding vendors to their table during morning set up
  • helping return the space to “neutral” at the end of the day
  • watching vendor tables when someone needs to step away for a short period of time
  • assisting the Event Day Manager with the Welcome Table

This year we have decided to hold a smaller outdoor event next to the Farmers’ Market. Since the dawning of COVID-19, volunteers must individually take full responsibility to assess any risks to their health, considering all factors and information available.

We will need help at various times throughout the day starting from 7am and going until 2pm latest. Please contact the Event Coordinator.
