Baildon Hybrid Library Volunteer

Do you like libraries?

Enjoy being around people?

Fancy having a go at stamping books?

Then join our friendly team of volunteers at Baildon Library!

Since June 2017 Baildon Library has been a hybrid library run by experienced library staff (managed by Bradford Libraries) and volunteers (coordinated by Baildon Town Council).

Our dedicated team of volunteers are:

  • interested in books or the different services offered by the library;
  • enthusiastic and reliable;
  • friendly and enjoy working with people.

You do not have to have computer skills to be able to volunteer – training on all aspects of the role will be given.

Shifts are flexible to fit in around your other commitments and we ask that Baildon Library volunteers commit to at least two shifts per month.

For more information, contact volunteer coordinator, Rachel Gallagher on email: or telephone: 079380 63061.
