If you love books and meeting other readers, please consider volunteering your time and talents to the Lexington Book Festival. The festival is run completely by volunteers, and your help is needed and appreciated.

Volunteers must attend a brief training session before volunteering at a Lexington Book Festival event. All volunteers will be required to sign a waiver/release statement.

Lexington Book Festival is under no obligation to accept a volunteer. Approval for volunteering rests with the Volunteer Coordinator and the Lexington Book Festival Board of Directors. A volunteer may be asked to step down if their actions interfere with the mission of the festival.
