VOLUNTEER

 

We are always looking for volunteers to help out in the bookstore, during special events, and in other capacities. Those interested in gaining non-profit experience, knowledge of the literary world and of book store operations, please contact Peter Burzynski at peterb@woodlandpattern.org or 414-263-5001. 

After 15 hours, volunteers are eligible for a 30% discount on store merchandise and free admittance to events (some restrictions do apply).

Book Center Volunteers

Woodland Pattern is looking for enthusiastic and reliable Book Center Volunteers! We are in need of volunteers to help fill Tuesday–Friday, 5-8pm, and Saturday–Sunday 12pm–5pm. Weekend availability required.

Bookstore volunteers work on a rotating schedule so that no one person works every weekend.

Special Events Volunteers

We hold four special events per year:

  • Poetry Marathon in January
  • Edible Books Show in April
  • Community Ties Raffle during Locust Street Festival in June 
  • Annual Anniversary Gala in November

Every year we call volunteers to ask if they're available to help out during the actual event. Call us to be added to the list.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently searching for volunteers interested in working closely with specific staff on specialized projects. Inquire for more information to volunteer in these areas:

  • Marketing, Social Media, & Development
  • Programming, Inventory, & Distribution
  • Systems & Data Management
