Reading Group Volunteer ( available at all Rochdale Library locations)

We hold regular reading groups at some of our libraries where adults meet to discuss books. Libraries are looking for volunteers to help with a variety of duties. In return, we can offer you the chance to make a positive difference in your local community. Volunteering can also give you the practical experience and training you'll need to become more desirable to employers.
