2019 VCBF Volunteer Registration
There are many opportunities to volunteer with the 2019 Virginia Children's Book Festival, and we need your help!

We need escorts for all of our authors, friendly faces to welcome children to Longwood, room monitors to help make sure sessions run smoothly, guides to direct everyone around camps and run the information booth, and much more.

There are four available shifts each day: 8:30-11:00, 10:00-1:00, 12:00-3:00, and 1:00-4:00. Some volunteer roles (such as author escorts) require an all-day commitment, while other roles (such as room monitors) only require
a few hours. We'd love to have you for multiple shifts, and also welcome your help even if you are not able to be available for an entire shift.

Please complete the short form below, which will help us place you as a volunteer in a role best suited to your interests and availability. Your submission of the form is your commitment to serve as a volunteer for the 2019 VCBF, and we're looking forward to having you! We will be in touch with more information on what to expect in the weeks leading up to the festival, but please don't hesitate to reach out to us at volunteer@vachildrensbookfestival.org if you have any questions or concerns in the mean time.
