Philadelphia Center for the Book is an all-volunteer organization. We rely on our friends and members to organize and staff programs. In 2014, we restructured to make it easier for volunteers to participate in the areas they are passionate about. We can also use help in more traditional roles such as Marketing, Events, Exhibitions, and Development.
