Volunteer in the City Center Bookstore!

Dear practitioners of the way and members of the wider sangha,

Do you like books? How about incense? Or meditation cushions, or statues, or chatting with interesting people? If any of that sounds like fun to you, consider volunteering at the bookstore.

The City Center Bookstore is looking for daytime volunteers. We are open Mondays through Fridays, 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm, and Saturdays, 11 am – 1 pm. We specifically need people available Mondays from 1:30 – 5:30 pm or 2 – 4 pm and the occasional Saturday from 11 am – 1 pm. We would also be delighted to have volunteers at other times that the bookstore is open.

You do not need to be an expert—after all we are Beginner’s Mind Temple! We will teach you to run the cash register, talk about meditation techniques, and give you access to all the wonderful books on our shelves. Volunteers receive a discount at the bookstore, our deep appreciation, and greater participation in our community. It is a wonderful way to connect with practice.

We are very happy to train you and answer any questions as they arise. We therefore ask that you are able to make a 3-month commitment. ?If you are interested please email the bookstore: bookstore@sfzc.org?.

Thank you,
Caitlin Fabens
City Center Bookstore Manager
