Where and When to Volunteer

September – April 

From September to April, volunteer training takes place on Saturdays at the Aull Center from 10AM – 1PM. Training takes about an hour, so please arrive no later than noon. The Aull Center is located at 351 Spruce St. in downtown Morgantown, right next door to the public library.

If Saturdays won’t work or you are interested in training during the summer, write to appalachianpbp@gmail.com.

Once you are trained, you can volunteer anytime the Aull Center is open:

Mon-Wed 9AM-7:00PM;  Thurs-Fri 9AM-4PM;  Sat 9AM-1PM

Summer Training

We also need volunteers in the summer! If you need to be trained, contact Katy at kohearnr@mail.wvu.edu.

What Volunteers Do

At the training, you will learn how we respond to letters from imprisoned women and men who are looking for books to read.

Volunteers can also help in any of the following ways:

      • Donate books (see our “Donate” page for books we need & do not need!)
      • Shelve books & organize the office space
      • Fundraise! Spread the word!
      • Make contacts with prison libraries
      • Correspond with people who are in prison
      • Sponsor a book drive for dictionaries

We can always use help! If you have questions, please contact us.
