Volunteering with Kirklees Libraries

Kirklees Library Service would not be able to offer all the wonderful things we do without our brilliant team of volunteers. We are always on the look out for new volunteers. If you have a spare hour or two to offer, there may be a role for you. 


By volunteering you can enhance the lives of others by supporting the library service to: increase reading and literacy; improve digital access and literacy; support everyone to achieve their full potential; support everyone to live healthier and happier lives; enable greater prosperity; build stronger, more resilient communities; offer everyone access to culture and the opportunity to be creative.
