Volunteering at our libraries

Volunteer today and make a difference

With busy lives, it can be hard to find the time to volunteer but there are many benefits to volunteering not only for you but for your family and your community.

Sandwell libraries welcomes volunteers and greatly values the time and skills that our volunteers give.

We need you to help us build services which are relevant, innovative and respond to the needs of the local community.

Volunteering is fun, rewarding and it changes lives. Come and experience it at your local library!

We are looking for people from all walks of life to help us deliver services at our libraries for the benefit of the whole community.

  • You will be supporting your local community by supporting local services
  • Personal satisfaction of helping other people to realise their potential.
  • Share your skills with others
  • Learn new skills and gain valuable work experience
  • Engage in your local community life

We are also looking for young volunteers aged 13 to 24 years old to help us through the summer.
