Ways to help


Volunteers at The Carle are interested in sharing their love of museums, art-making, and children’s books with guests of all ages. Volunteers enjoy benefits, such as discounts in The Carle Bookshop, appreciation events during the year, and opportunities to attend professional development workshops. For the best experience, we ask that volunteers commit to one shift per week for at least three months during The Museum’s regular open hours. At this time, volunteer positions are open to applicants 18 years or older.

About usThe Carle is the international champion for picture books. Eric and Barbara Carle founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, in November, 2002. “It has been said that picture books are an introduction to literature for young children,” Carle said. “We also wanted to introduce our youngest guests, so new to museums, to the joys of looking at art.” The Carle, as it’s known, has more than 8,500 illustrations, representing more than 200 artists and a century of picture books, in its permanent collection.
