Kegworth Community Library is maintained by a team of volunteers for all residents in the local area. It is part funded by Leicestershire County Council, but needs to raise an additional £5000 each year to remain open. They may be a small library, but they have big ideas, and to continue with their expansion plans, they need all the volunteers they can get!
About your role
Students are needed to help run the library alongside other volunteers. You’ll learn all about what is required to be a community librarian and support a small village charity. You’ll be welcoming visitors, locating and shelving books, processing library membership applications, and generally helping to ensure the smooth running of the library.
KCL are looking for volunteers to commit to a minimum of an hour a fortnight, for a period of around 3 months. This is such an easy way to make a huge difference to your local community in just a few short hours!
