Volunteer in libraries

If you have some spare time and want to help in our libraries or community centres, we can offer a variety of volunteering opportunities. Whatever your reason for getting involved, you can be confident that you'll enjoy some great benefits. Volunteering with us means you'll learn new skills which is great for your CV. You'll work with experts, make new friends and have a positive impact on the local community. So, if you can spare an hour per week or more, we'd love to hear from you.
