Young Volunteers

Volunteering opportunities for young people in Barnet libraries over the summer holidays

If you are aged 14-17 and think you might have some spare time during your summer holidays, then why not have a go at volunteering with us? 

Every year Barnet runs the Summer Reading Challenge in its libraries, encouraging children aged 4 – 11 to read six books over their summer holidays.  Do you think you could spare up to 8 hours to help us promote the Challenge?  Your role would involve signing children up to the scheme, giving out stickers and prizes as they read their books and helping out at the fun activities that we’ve got planned!  In return we can give you a reference and your hours will count towards your DofE award or Arts Award.

We are looking for young volunteers at the following libraries:

  • Burnt Oak
  • Chipping Barnet
  • Colindale
  • East Finchley
  • Edgware
  • Finchley Church End
  • Golders Green
  • Hendon
  • North Finchley
  • Osidge

More information and an application form can be downloaded by clicking the links at the bottom of the page.  

Please scan and email your applications to rachel.reilly@barnet.gov.uk by Monday 16 July 2018. Alternatively, send them by post to Rachel Reilly (YV2018), c/o Osidge Library, Brunswick Park Road, London N11 1EY.
