Drop in to find about about the many volunteer roles at Ringwood Library

If you are interested in volunteering in a library why not pop into Ringwood Library and find out more about all the exciting opportunities for volunteering with Hampshire Libraries. 

During the school summer holidays we are always looking for enthusiastic book lovers to support the national Summer Reading Challenge https://readingagency.org.uk/children/quick-guides/summer-reading-challenge/. This fantastic opportunity involves looking after the 'Challenge Desk' to meet families, sign up children to the holiday reading challenge, give out rewards stickers, medals and certificates: but most of all - to encourage them to carry on reading!

Do approach any of our friendly staff on your nest visit and they will be happy to help.


There is some computer use involved; so laptop familiarity is essential.

Accuracy and admin skills - as we need to record basic sign up information and achievement records.

Customer skills - as our volunteers are the key to the success of the challenge!
