Volunteer to help your local library

Swindon Libraries are looking for volunteers to get involved in a variety of activities. There is something for everyone, whatever your interest and whatever time you have available.
If you would like to volunteer for Swindon Libraries, you must first attend a Volunteer Recruitment Evening. This is a chance for anyone interested in volunteering with Swindon Libraries to find out more information.

We discuss available roles, what is involved, explain the application process and provide information about training and the benefits of volunteering with the library service.

By volunteering you can develop your skills, meet new people and contribute to your local community. We are looking for volunteers to help with Summer Reading Challenge, library support, library IT, english conversation clubs, children’s storytime and activities, library events and lots more. We are looking for volunteers at Swindon Central Library, Highworth Library, North Swindon Library, Park Library and West Swindon Library.

Volunteer recruitment events

We host these volunteer recruitment events on the 26 day of every month. They start at 6.00pm on week nights and 12.00pm on weekends, with a presentation on all volunteering opportunities.

At each event, we talk about vacancies available across all Swindon libraries, so you can attend at any location and still get a chance to volunteer at your preferred library.

Details of each event and how to register are listed in the table below:
