Apply to be a library volunteer


East Sussex libraries will be closed for the Bank Holiday on Monday 27 May.

Meet new people, learn new skills and give something back to your community.

You could help with our home library service, bookshop, children’s activities, or give advice on using computers and more.

We will train you and meet regularly to make sure all is going smoothly.

We will contact you within 5 working days to talk about our volunteering opportunities and whether your preferred role is available near you. If roles are full, we will add you to the waiting list.

You will need to provide 2 references for all of our volunteering roles. We may also need to arrange a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) .

We pay expenses such as mileage costs for using your own car for our Home Library Service. We will need confirmation from your insurance company that your car is insured for voluntary work.
