Rochester Hills Public Library Friends Store Looking for Volunteers


(ROCHESTER HILLS- July 1, 2019) The Rochester Hills Public Library Friends Store is searching for more volunteers.

The Friends Store sells a variety of items, including Michigan-made foods and art pieces, to raise funds for library programming.

“Everyone involved works hard to create a great relationship between the library and the patrons,” said Friends Board President Ron Meegan.

New volunteers are paired with veteran volunteers to learn the ropes of selling the store’s dazzling merchandise, and interacting with the diverse group of customers who frequent the shop.

“We are always looking for helpful, smiling people to join our staff,” said Friends Store Manager Darlene Tomczyk.

Interested individuals can stop by the Friends Store, located on the first floor of the library, to pick up an application. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays when the library is open.
