Interested In Becoming A Volunteer?

Would-be volunteers are invited along to an event at Cambridge Central Library tomorrow (Wednesday 16 October).

The awareness and recruitment event is part of the Cambridgeshire Celebrates Age programme, this year the theme is Celebrating Volunteers.

The event will take place between 10am-1pm. During the morning, there will be an opportunity to find out more about what’s involved from people already volunteering for a wide range of local organisations as well as those volunteering for Cambridgeshire Libraries and Archives.

Volunteer roles in libraries range from delivering books to housebound residents, teaching basic internet skills to the over-50s and providing story time sessions.

Cambridgeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Learning, Councillor David Harty said "If you love your library, which we know many of our residents do, then this is a fantastic opportunity to come along and find out more about the wide variety of volunteer roles that there are to help support the service. If you decide it’s something you’d like to do then you can also sign up on the day.
