Are you passionate about literacy, books, working with children, and building community? You might enjoy volunteering with Twice Upon a Time!  Please contact us to tell us a little about yourself and why you are interested in volunteering.

Here are some of the ways you could contribute:

Operating or volunteering at one of our free pop-up bookstores

  • Setting up books
  • Welcoming kids and families
  • Helping children choose a book
  • Stamping books
  • Reading books aloud to children
  • Keeping a record of books given out
  • Taking down the pop-up and storing materials

Experience working with kids and knowledge of children’s books is an asset, but not essential.  We need more volunteers who can communicate with children and parents in French. All volunteers who work directly with children will be required to obtain a police record check suitable for working with the vulnerable sector.

Sorting & driving

  • Sorting books into categories
  • Discarding unsuitable or damaged books
  • Delivering books to pop-up bookstores and self-serve locations

Communications support

  • Writing – Developing promotional materials, and creating content for the website, blog, social media, newsletter, community newspapers, and annual reports
  • Translating – texts from English to French
  • Photography – documenting events, creating a portfolio of photos for promotional purposes
  • Videography – creating videos to promote our services, orient new volunteers, explain how to organize a book drive, etc.
  • Graphic design – for website, posters, marketing materials, etc.
  • Webmaster – for maintaining and updating our website
