Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Southampton City Libraries. 

We appreciate and value the time and help our volunteers give and the benefit it brings to our customers, staff and the wider community. 

Whatever your experience or amount of time you can give, there are opportunities for everyone. 

These opportunities include: 

Applicants must be aged 16 or over, with the exception of Summer Reading Challenge volunteers who must be aged 14 to 25. Successful applicants may be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
