Thank you for showing an interest in volunteering to help keep the library open for the community. We need volunteers as librarians, key holders, fundraising organisers, for general maintenance of the building and garden and on the management team. Volunteers in the library will ALWAYS work as part of a team and full training and support is given. We have a very friendly and passionate group of volunteers who enjoy providing the community with a book borrowing service and other community activities.
For information on our main volunteering roles, FAQs, an application form and reference form please see below.
Alternatively, for paper copies of our volunteering documents email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a note at the library and we will send them to you.
Thank you for your continued interest in Narborough and Littlethorpe Community Library. We can’t do it without your help!

Become a Friend of the Library
Thanks to the hard work of some of our volunteers, we launched our new ‘Friends of Narborough Library’ scheme. This is a membership scheme for individuals to support the on-going costs of the library with a yearly donation (suggested minimum £10 per year but larger donations are gratefully received!). This scheme helps us to pay our yearly running costs (electricity, water, insurance, etc) which is currently between £5000-£6000. These donations provide a much needed regular income to ensure the future sustainability of our lovely little library!
As a ‘Library Friend’ participants get a regular newsletter keeping them informed of the library progress and invitations to social and fundraising events. In addition, all ‘Friends‘ will go into a twice yearly draw for a small prize (bottle of wine, chocolates, etc). It is a great way for members of the wider community to show support for the library and so far it is proving to be a success but we still need more ‘Friends’ to join the scheme.
The scheme membership runs from April until April the following year. Taxpayers can agree for us to claim ‘gift aid’ from the Government if they wish which increases the donation by 25%
Application forms are available from the library so pop in and pick one up if you are interested!
This is a fantastic opportunity for people to become involved in their Community. We hope that many of you will want to support us and become our ‘Friend’!
