Our Library couldn’t run without our fantastic volunteers.  In fact without them, Shenstone Library wouldn’t be open.

As a community run library we rely on our amazing team of volunteers and those who donate their time and effort into making our library the welcoming and friendly place it is.

Volunteering at Shenstone Library is not only a lot of fun and a great place to meet new people,  it’s also an incredibly rewarding experience filled with the opportunity to learn new skills and make some friends along the way!

We’ve got a whole host of roles, from Library Assistants, Coffee Shop Baristas/Assistants, Events Coordinators and more.

Those interested can get in touch using the details below. We can’t wait to hear from you!
