Become a Volunteer

There are many opportunities for people to join our team of enthusiastic & committed volunteers.

Whether you want to work as a volunteer librarian for a few hours a week or be involved in some of the other work of The Library we would love to hear from you. From activities & events planning to book management and social media we can offer you a rewarding opportunity to support and give back to your local community. We encourage our volunteers to become active in our various subcommittees and to exercise their skills as much as they wish.

A group of people inside The LibraryThe volunteers sign up for their shifts using free online software called Sign Up. There are usually two volunteers per shift, one of whom will be a lead volunteer who is more experienced and agrees to take responsibility for, e.g., opening up/closing The Library. Every new volunteer goes through induction training.

We have no employees and so without our volunteers The Library could not remain open.

If you want to join us, you can download the application form and pop it into The Library or email it to us and we shall contact you.
