Willing volunteers to help organise archive/artefact items. You will be helping move displays, shelve items etc.good organisational skills
Peep is looking for caring and enthusiastic volunteers who would like to help at our baby and toddler groups throughout the city. We offer free groups that promote attachment based activities (i.e. singing, book sharing, different types of play) to parents and carers in Aberdeen. Our groups are very popular with most having a waitlist, but as a small team we can only offer so many sessions. We’re initially looking for volunteers to help us at the groups but there is a potential for volunteers to receive training to eventually deliver their own Peep groups.
If singing and playing with small children isn’t for you, we’re also looking for volunteers to help us with our resource library. Our library has approximately 5000 items and it is a job in itself to keep it up to date. Our library needs someone who can help us clean, sort, repair, and develop new resources that can be used at groups. Although not essential, we appreciate volunteers who can and are willing to sew and be crafty!
For further details please contact Natasha Martens, Peep Coordinator at E Mail: email@example.com or tel.: 01224 248389.
Homework clubs are a service from East Lothian Libraries. They consist of a 1 hour drop-in session, run by a volunteer Homework Club Leader with the assistance of a volunteer Homework Club Helper. Primary School Children can come and do their homework at their local library where they would benefit from space to study, access to a wide selection of books, online resources, word processing and supervised internet access.
The volunteers would supervise children, support them in completing their homework, assist them with using the range of research tools available in the library, and encourage them to search the library shelves for books that might be relevant to their needs. They will also be asked to complete a small amount of administration and paperwork involved in the running of the club.
Volunteering with the homework clubs would provide an exciting opportunity for anyone who is interested in working with children whether as a teacher, in a nursery or as a youth worker and would enhance any application for university.
The majority of club members will be aged 8-12 (P4-7), but, depending on the Homework Club Leader, some clubs may accept children from P1. The aim of the homework clubs is to provide a safe friendly environment for children within the library where they can come together and work on their homework. Volunteers offer support but do not teach the children.
Assist staff with members of the public with history and Sourcing archive materials
The housebound library service requires volunteers to collect books from the library and deliver them to housebound people in the Inverness and Nairn areas. This is an excellent opportunity for people who are interested in reading to interact with a person who has similar interests. Once the volunteer is made aware of the clients reading preference, they go to the library, select appropriate books, take them to the client and take others back to the library. This will make a difference to the housebound persons life!!
