Volunteering

In East Dunbartonshire libraries we have lots of volunteers who take part in and enjoy many worthwhile volunteering opportunities. There are activities for everyone, whatever your age, experience or the amount of time you are able to give.

Some of the most popular volunteering opportunities are detailed below.

Summer Reading Challenge every Summer we recruit volunteers aged from 13 to17 years to help encourage children to sign up and read six books.

volunteers also help with gaming, crafts events and recording audiobooks blurbs to assist our visually impaired readers.

If you have a few hours to spare and are interested in volunteering in libraries ask at your local library or contact us on libraries@eastdunbarton.gov.uk

We’ll ask you to complete an application form, meet us to discuss possibilities and give us the names of two referees. For some roles, such as working with vulnerable adults or children, we will ask you to complete a Disclosure check.
