2019 Decatur Book Festival Volunteers Needed


August 31 - September 1, 2019


First Baptist Church Decatur will host attendees for the 14th AJC Decatur Book Festival (DBF) on August 31 - September 1 (Labor Day weekend). We have been a book festival venue since 2009 and are delighted to again partner with our community and welcome hundreds of folks to our campus. Volunteers will cover a variety of venue support tasks in the sanctuary and Carreker Hall, have the opportunity to mingle with interesting authors, and receive a FREE Decatur Book Festival t-shirt!  

There are a couple of opportunities available to you:

1. Author Talk/Venue Support 

Assist at one of the author venues by greeting attendees, directing them to seating, and managing lines during book purchases and signings.

2. Volunteer Check-in

Check-in volunteers at the FBCD office, give them their t-shirt, and direct them to their assignment in the sanctuary or Carreker. This is a perfect job for an organized, detail-oriented person who enjoys meeting people.

How to Sign-Up

Signing up is easy with the Volunteer Decatur automated system that allows you to see descriptions of the various roles, choose your preferred date, and make changes to your assignment after you sign-up.
