Where and When to Volunteer

From September to April, volunteer training takes place on Saturdays at the Aull Center from 10AM – 1PM. *Please arrive no later than noon.

The beautiful Aull Center is located at 351 Spruce St. in downtown Morgantown, right next door to the public library. The APBP office is on the 2nd floor.

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

If our training times won’t work for you, please write to appalachianpbp@gmail.com.

What Volunteers Do

At the training, you will learn how we respond to letters from people in prison who are looking for books to read. You will have the chance to read letters, select books, and wrap packages to be mailed.

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!
      • Make contacts with prison libraries
      • Correspond with people who are in prison
      • Sponsor a book drive for high priority books
