Volunteering with Birmingham community libraries

We are looking for front of house volunteers for Hall Green, Sparkhill, Erdington and Spring Hill Libraries

Are you friendly and like talking to people?  Have you got good ICT skills?  Do you enjoy helping people?  We are looking for volunteers that help customers learn to use the self service machines in libraries.  Volunteers welcome borrowers into our libraries and show them how to issue, renew and return their books.  Our volunteers also help library customers access our public internet booking service and log-on to our free WiFi provision.

If you volunteer with Birmingham community libraries we can:

  • write a reference for you
  • introduce you to a working environment
  • provide you with an experience that will look good on your CV
  • give you the chance to meet new friends and socialise
