Author Liaison: As an Author Liaison, you will be assigned to each of the three Festival venues to help ensure that authors' arrival and departure to the venue goes smoothly. You will be responsible to ensure that authors arrive to the venue 15 minutes before their session to meet their session moderator. Author Liaison volunteers are the face of JLF Colorado team for authors who travel to present at the festival. These volunteers must exhibit follow through, communication, and an easy-going attitude. Volunteers in this role are equipped with a program brochure and venue map so they can effectively help authors navigate the festival and answer questions. Volunteers in this role must be 18 or older. Court-Ordered Community Service volunteers are NOT accepted for this role. In-person training is required for this role. Please sign up to attend one training session. Book Signing Volunteer: Book Signing Volunteers may guide the author to the book signing table and help to ensure that the book signing process is a calm, orderly, and enjoyable experience for all. You will help manage visitor lines and ensure that only those with books are in line and limit the number of visitors requesting signatures if requested by the author. At least 30 minutes before each book signing, you will check with the bookshop that the author books are available in the book signing area. Prior to each session, you will check with the bookshop that the author books are available for purchase (at the bookshop and the book signing area) and that the author will be available for book signing after the session. You will also coordinate with the venue ushers to clarify which one of you will bring the authors to the book signing table immediately after the session – either the Usher or the Book Signing Volunteer. Books are only signed for approximately 15 minutes after a session so quick movement from the venue to the book signing table is important. Court-Ordered Community Service volunteers are NOT accepted for this role. In-person training is required for this role. Please sign up to attend one training session. Author Lounge Monitor: Two private spaces at the library will serve as Author Lounges. Authors have access to the lounges all day and these spaces will be used to socialize, store personal items, eat meals, and have snacks. Author Lounge Monitors will help set up the lounge at the beginning of the day and keep it functioning smoothly. Author Lounge Monitors will monitor the entrances, ensuring that authors are warmly welcomed and that the lounges are reserved for the authors and only those with permission to enter. You will also help maintain the space. During the first and last shift of the day, volunteers will set up or take down items in the space in addition to monitoring the lounge. Volunteers in this role must be 18 or older. Court-Ordered Community Service volunteers are NOT accepted for this role. In-person training is required for this role. Please sign up to attend one training session. The minimum age to volunteer is 15. Volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian digitally sign the online Risk & Release Form when registering to volunteer.Volunteers Registered: 35 (17 available)
