Children's events volunteer

Libraries are not just a place for books, there is often a lot more going on at your local library! For our smaller customers we often run events, from craft sessions, to lego clubs or coding clubs.

We could always use an extra pair of hands, to help with the glue or just to encourage the children in their projects. Please pop into your local library to get a flavour of what’s on offer that you may be able to help us with.

Applying to volunteer in a library

Our library staff may contact you shortly to discuss your application and answer any questions you may have. Please contact us for more information about any volunteer role.

Before you start you will need:

  • Details of 2 referees 

Some volunteer roles require a DBS check to ensure the protection of vulnerable residents. We will advise you how this process is carried out if necessary.
