Library Volunteers

We all know that volunteering is both good for you as well as good for your community. And volunteering in your local library is interesting because of how many people you may meet, and exciting because there’s lots going on in libraries for everyone.

Bracknell Forest Library Service has a range of roles available, from introducing young children to libraries through stories and rhyme, assisting children’s craft activities, running book groups, leading a reminiscence session, supporting the Home Library Service or sharing your digital skills in Code Club or as a Digital Buddy.

We want to inspire as many people as possible to get involved in the borough’s libraries to ensure they remain a strong part of our local communities.

Mike Allen, volunteer co-ordinator for the Library Service said: “We have a number of committed volunteers already in place but we are looking for new recruits to join the team and support our experienced library staff “Volunteering is a great way to support your local library and give something back to your community. It’s a way of learning new skills and sharing your expertise with others.  Just a few hours a week can make a huge difference to your library and its visitors.”
