Following the campaign to save Stirchley Library in 2017, Friends of Stirchley Library is now focused on the future of the library. We want to support the existing library service and staff and keep the library at the centre of the Stirchley community for years to come.

We are currently establishing a network of volunteers who can support the library staff and move towards the library being open more often and accessible to more people. 

We are looking for volunteers to support Friends Of Stirchley Library in the following areas:

Supporting the existing library staff and expanding opening hours

We are looking to offer an expanded service, starting out with lunchtimes and evening events, with the aim of increasing library usage and moving towards the library being open more than 3 days per week. This will be a great way to meet other people in the community and contribute to the expansion of the library service.

Volunteers will assist customers with the use of the new Self-Service Kiosk, use of PCs and printing.

Assisting the programming and running of community events

We want the library to be at the heart of our community, a venue that hosts a wide variety of events for people of all ages and families. We can only do this through the support of volunteers. Have an idea for an event that could be held at the library? Or just want to help out with setting up and running events? We’d love to see more book clubs, community group meetings, creative workshops and evening events taking place at the library.
