Volunteering in libraries

Libraries reopening news and updates

In line with latest Government guidance, libraries across Surrey County Council are closed to browsing. Residents will be able to use our Click & Collect service and PCs for essential use. Full details on our Coronavirus information page.

Due to government guidance introduced to halt the spread of Covid-19, most of our volunteer roles are still on hold, which means that we will not be recruiting new volunteers at present. The exception to this is the Library Direct Housebound Service volunteer role. If you are interested in this role, please visit Library Direct volunteering to find out more.

We will follow official guidance and regularly assess the situation and when circumstances improve we will open up other volunteering opportunities again. Please check this page at a later date for any changes to the situation.

Roles which we will be offering later in the year cover the following areas: Digital Support, Children's Activities, Opportunities for Young People and other more general roles to support libraries.

Thank you for your understanding of the current situation and we look forward to welcoming you to volunteer with us soon.
