Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us. Our volunteers have many different backgrounds and levels of experience. Here are some of the things you can expect to do as a volunteer:

  • Help library customers
  • Organise book stock
  • Provide IT help
  • Run children’s activities

If you have another role in mind, we’d love to hear about it! We are always looking to put the skills of our volunteers to good use.

The most important thing that we are looking for is willing, regular volunteers that are excited about giving their time for the community. We are currently open on Mondays 10am-5pm, Wednesdays 12-5pm, Fridays 10am-4pm, and Saturdays 11.30am-1.30pm. Shifts range from 2 to 3.5 hours long, and each shift is covered by two volunteers. Our online rota system allows you to sign up for the shifts that suit you best. We like our volunteers to commit to at least one shift per month.

Please let us know if you have any further questions by emailing us at info@burgessroadlibrary.org.uk
