OCTOBER 13-16, 2022

and year round


Get Involved


Each year, the Book Festival brings thousands of people to Madison for wonderful book programming, but we don't do it alone.  Every year, YOU help us make this unparalleled event possible by donating a small amount of your time as volunteers.

Volunteers at the Book Festival do so many things.  Whether it's selling books or giving directions, helping people get their books signed or running an incredible author event, volunteers truly make the Wisconsin Book Festival possible.  Please consider joining us this year.

If you're interested in volunteering at the festival this year, please sign up online.  If you have questions about volunteering at this year's Wisconsin Book Festival, please email wbfvolunteers@mplfoundation.org for more details.


This year, we're also looking for a few special volunteers to help promote the festival.  We are seeking:


Volunteer Photographers
We can't be everywhere at once, so we are looking for volunteer photographers to share pictures of events happening outside of the Central Library.


Social Media Ambassadors
Always online? Share your enthusiasm for the festival via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!


If any of these three opportunities interest you, please contact Tana Elias at 266-4953 or telias@madisonpubliclibrary.org for more information.
