We’re a community library open to everyone that depends heavily on volunteers to run many of our services. What you give is priceless. What you get is an opportunity to make a difference, be part of a community that cares and come into contact with interesting, engaging and very committed people.

Computer Centre help desk duty — Weekly three-hour shifts. Duties include checking in and giving light guidance to clients using computers, printing and scanning documents, and making photocopies.

CELI Project — Helping individuals gain confidence and skills to find a job. Topics include using LinkedIn, writing CVs and cover letters, and preparing for interviews.

Digital coaching
