Volunteering in libraries

Volunteering is a great way to help your community and make a real difference to people’s lives. It is also personally rewarding - helping you to stay active, meet new people, grow in confidence and provide a sense of achievement.

There are volunteering opportunities available at most of Solihull’s libraries. No specific experience is needed for most activities, and we work with you to match your free time with the needs of your local library. 

Our volunteers complement the work that our library staff do.
