Volunteering is a great way to meet people and gain experience, it could also help to build your confidence as well as help you develop new skills. Libraries are the hub of our communities and you could play a huge part in making a difference to both adults and children who use the facilities.
There are opportunities to volunteer at the following libraries:

To meet the requirements, volunteers will be asked to commit to a minimum of two hours per week in your chosen library, however the role is flexible and will work around your availability. Your travel expenses will be covered when a valid receipt is provided.
