New volunteers are always welcome, to cover many and various duties, ranging from book reception, meet and greet, book sorting and arranging, to behind the scenes work concerned with library running and development.

We are also interested in recruiting (in the voluntary sense; you will not get paid!) people with special hobbies and interests, who are willing to start new groups to meet regulary in the library.

We currently open five days per week, and the ability to maintain, and eventually extend opening hours, is entirely reliant on our pool of volunteers. We offer the chance to meet an interesting and eclectic mix of local people, working with a common aim to benefit the South Chingford community,

If we have whetted your appetite, then please download a volunteer application form, and after completing, please bring it in to the library.

For volunteers on reception duty, here is a video showing how to use the book management system on the reception PC:
