What can you
Here are some ideas, but If you have others suggestions,
just let us know!
Put your computer
knowledge to good use by helping our customers –young and old – to
get started on our library computers, set up email accounts, look
things up or try Facebook for the first time.
Some children don’t
have a quiet space at home to do their homework. Help them get
their work done at the library instead.
Help us set up a group
for children or young people.
Promote library services to your friends
by creating reviews using digital media.
When can you do it?
Volunteering can be carried out after school,
weekends, or during the school holidays. We’ll try
to be flexible and fit around your availability.
Why should you do it?
It’s great fun and it will look good on your CV or your UCAS
You will learn new
skills and gain great experience. Your volunteering could count
towards accreditation such as service for your Duke of Edinburgh
Award, your International Baccalaureate, an Arts Award or Sports
