Join the Dream Team


I’ve loved introducing people to things they haven’t tried before – camping, musical instruments, sewing machines... I’ve made great friends and learned practical skills like DIY
— Library of Things Librarian

VOLUNTEER POSITIONS:

We're looking for enthusiastic, practical and committed people to join our team. Think you fit the bill? Get in touch via the form below.

Librarians

Are you a people person? Enjoy connecting neighbours and telling stories? Happy to plan events and make things happen?

Our team of librarians work together to

  • make sure our diverse mix of members have a wonderful experience as soon as they step inside the Library of Things
  • show borrowers how to use the Things (we provide basic training) 
  • bring in new members from the local area – by door knocking, attending local events, using a splash of creativity...
  • be the in-house DJ
  • roll up sleeves and pitch in wherever the small team needs a hand! 

Want to know what it's like day-to-day? Listen to our podcast to hear from Librarians and borrowers.
 

Tool fixers

Are you a dab hand at DIY? Happy to rewire a plug? Like fixing things and building systems that work? 

Our team of tool fixers will work together to

  • oversee and update our item catalogue system
  • ensure items are safe, clean and functional before being borrowed (including PAT testing – training provided)
  • upgrade and maintain our shipping container space
  • roll up sleeves and pitch in wherever the small team needs a hand!
     

Event organisers

Have you got a passion or skill you'd like to share with others? Woodworking, sewing, baking, gardening, chutney-making?

Local people have worked with Library of Things before to put on Woodworking Workshops, Mending Meet-ups and Chutney Making sessions.
