Working at River Bend

Thank you for your interest in working at River Bend!  

All staff are required to be able to lift 30 pounds, bend and twist at the waist, navigate stairs, and stand for long periods.  If your dream is to sit in a cozy bookshop and read, occasionally looking up as the bell on the door chimes, this isn't the job for you.  If you enjoy talking with people about books, staying busy, and keeping up with all the latest releases, we may be a fit!

Working at River Bend Bookshop - the myth versus the reality



If you are passionate about books and enjoy sharing recommendations with everyone you meet, you might be a bookseller!  Bookseller applications are accepted anytime, though most of our hiring occurs in April and August.  Please complete both the application and seasonal questionnaire and bring them to the Bookshop for consideration.  


Event Volunteers

The River Bend Author Stage will be live on Hubbard Green Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, and we can really use your help!  Volunteer for a 90-minute time slot handing out schedules and greeting authors and we'll give you one of our brand new River Bend backpack totes.  You'll also get to spend part of your day with some of the book-iest people around, at our biggest event of the year!  Complete our Google Form to sign up now.
