Volunteer at Oldham libraries - Oldham Council

We have a range of volunteer opportunities within our library services ranging from Customer Support, IT Literacy/Online Basics to Front of House duties for Live@theLibrary.  Please let us know what sort of role you'd be interested in by completing this online form.

All roles require you to be a good communicator, reliable, confident and have enthusiasm for the work of our library service.  Some roles are more physically demanding than others and some are only available at certain libraries.

Volunteers will be inducted and trained prior to carrying out the role. They will also have a named supervisor who will provide ongoing support. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed to agreed limits on production of receipts.

There is a degree of flexibility around events, and we are happy to discuss this with you. Different Libraries will require different levels of commitments.

A DBS check will be required
