Interested in being a library volunteer?

17 June 2016

Springfield library is looking for new volunteers to assist with advising and supporting visitors.
The library, which opened in May 2013, provides a hugely popular service to local residents and is run on a day to day basis by a band of dedicated volunteers.
The volunteers run several sessions, including IT training groups, Baby and Toddler Rhyme time and a ‘Knit and Knatter’ group. A brand new crafts group is also being launched for mums this month.
Cllr Anne Brown, Essex County Council Cabinet Member with responsibility for libraries, said: “Springfield Library has continued to go from strength to strength over the last three years and is a great example of the Council working alongside the community to assist in providing a service.
“Following the recent Volunteers’ Week, which really highlighted the benefits of volunteering,  now is the ideal time to come along and find out a bit more about what the team does. Volunteering is a great way of meeting new people and giving something back to the local community.
“And, importantly, it also provides flexibility; you will be fully trained, but will only need to commit to the hours that suit you.”
For more information please contact Viv Wortley or Sharon Ross at Chelmsford Central Library on 01245 492758, or, pick up a volunteer application form from Springfield library.
