Love your library? Why not volunteer?

We offer an enjoyable and empowering experience for enthusiastic and committed people. Depending on your role you’ll either be working directly with the Warwickshire public or supporting those that do.

All core library work is carried out by staff, but volunteers take on a range of roles that help us add value to our communities, such as children’s activities, helping people use computers, discovering family histories and supporting our home library service.
