Gotham Library Volunteers Wanted


Inspire Culture, Learning and Libraries, who are contracted to deliver library services by Nottinghamshire County Council, are looking at different ways to provide sustainable library services. This includes setting up partnerships with community groups and schools across the county. The Gotham Memorial Hall Trustees are looking for interested volunteers to help maintain the current opening times and potentially increase opening times in the future. So, if you would like to gain some work experience or meet new people and love books, we would be interested in hearing from you. Volunteering duties may include shelving books, keeping the library presentable and helping customers in the library. Inspire will offer full training and for those interested, the opportunity to work towards our volunteering certificate.

Please contact Mrs. Pat Dines on 01159830582 or email or Eric Perrell on 0115 9749023 or email for further details.
