Our Home Library Service can only exist with the help of a dedicated team of volunteers, based at their local libraries and delivering books to Home Borrowers in their area.
Any adult can apply to be a volunteer with Vale Libraries. You will need: a friendly personality, an interest in books and reading, experience of working with people and an understanding of the needs of older people and those with disabilities. You will also have a valid driving licence and access to a vehicle with appropriate insurance and MoT.
All volunteers are interviewed and asked to provide references. They are CRB checked and given photo ID and in return are paid expenses at the standard mileage rate.
