Volunteering with libraries

1. Become a volunteer

Would you like to make a difference to people in your community?

From helping people to overcome their fears of using computers; enabling greater access to our Heritage resources or helping young people and parents in a code club.

We have a range of opportunities in areas such as:

  • archives and local history
  • helping people to access the internet, use computers and other digital devices
  • helping with activities within the libraries eg Code Club and Reading Hack
  • assisting with the Home Library Service

Volunteering with us will give you a variety of skills, including:

  • helping other people
  • boosting your CV
  • improving your confidence
  • meeting new people
  • growing your skills
  • valuable work experience

You can volunteer between 1 and 37 hours a week.

There are also opportunities to volunteer for The Duke of Edinburgh Award in a Stockport Library.

We have regular open days which provide an opportunity to meet staff and discuss volunteering in more detail.
