Get involved with your library

There are several ways that you can get involved with your library.

You can help by Volunteering with Southampton Libraries.

Friends' and supporters' groups

You can also get involved with one of the many Friends' groups that have been set up at Bitterne, Cobbett Road and Portswood libraries.

The groups support and promote their local library through various activities such as arranging social events fund raising and encouraging use of library facilities.
