Volunteering at Trafford Libraries

Volunteering is a great way to meet people, develop your skills and gain experience, on top of the satisfaction that your effort is making a big difference in your local community.

The skills you learn could enhance your opportunities for future employment and you could also gain a recognised NVQ qualification.

As part of our ongoing commitment to maintain libraries, we are regularly looking for volunteers who want to help support this vital service. Vacancies are for particular times and duties, select those you are interested in when completing the application form.

We do not have any vacancies at present but this changes regularly so keep checking.

If you are intrested in volunteering at Coppice Library and Wellbeing Centre, Limelight Old Trafford Library or Partington Library & Wellbeing Centre please visit the Volunteering Opportunities at Bluesci page.

Reading Friends volunteers

Reading Friends is a scheme for people to get together with a good book, poem or newspaper article, learn a new skill or reminisce and share stories. People can come along to meet others, make new friends, chat and have a laugh. More details are available on the Reading Friends website.

We are looking for Reading Friends volunteers to help with the project. To find out more have a look at our role description or contact libraries@trafford.gov.uk.

Shared Reading in Trafford

Shared Reading brings people together through great literature to talk, laugh and share. Meet people, share experiences, feel connected.

Supported by Achieve BST Recovery Fund, The Reader is starting new Shared Reading groups locally for people who are in recovery, so we’re looking for people who would like to train to lead them.
