Want to be a librarian for a day? Or run a craft session with little ones? Connect with elderly people in a reading session? Or discover ways of using poetry to interact more with nature and your local environment? Get involved with some of our amazing, creative events and readings?

We are volunteer-recruiting! There are lots of opportunities available for people of all ages, abilities, and interests: running the library at the market sessions, getting involved in some workshops, sessions, collaborative poetry-making, zine-making, helping us find new drop-off/collection points for books, creating a reading list of your favourite poems for us to share with our borrowers..and much more!

As well as being the life-blood of our organization, volunteering can help you learn new skills, meet new people, and engage with your community.

All you need is enthusiasm – poetry-expertise is definitely not a criteria (although it doesn’t hurt!), and we aim to include people of all physical and social abilities. There’s always something to be done, and we’re hungry for your ideas and energy!

Fancy meeting like-minded people and helping a local, grassroots, not-for profit project? Or just fancy hanging out with a bikeful of books? Then get in touch by emailing and we can add you to our volunteer mailing lists!
