We are seeking dedicated volunteers to help us provide a library service to members of the public in the community of Taibach and its surrounding areas.

Volunteers currently required for:

– Saturday 10:00 – 13:00 (one in 4 Saturdays on a rota basis)

No previous experience is necessary to volunteer with us, as full training will be provided.

Please read the Volunteer Library Assistant role description for further details on what the role entails.

Please fill in our application form we’ll be in touch if we’d like to invite you in for an interview.

Taibach Community Library has been run by a group of volunteers since May 2014. Our team of volunteers help to support the day to day running of the Library.

Our volunteers will receive induction training before commencing their voluntary role, to ensure that they know how to deal with all kinds of situations that occur during the day to day running of the Library.

There will always be someone contactable by telephone during the library’s hours of operation should you require any additional support.

Volunteer librarians typically volunteer for between 2½ – 3 hours per week. This volunteering slot is usually on the same day and time each week, with opportunities to provide cover on other days due to volunteer sickness or holidays.
