Are you working towards your bronze, silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and need to complete some volunteering? Why not help your local community by volunteering at the library? All Northamptonshire Libraries accept applications from young people wanting to complete their DofE volunteering with us all year round. Please note you will need to be registered with DofE before you start volunteering, otherwise any volunteering time won’t count towards your award. Talk to your local coordinator at school or your youth group to find out how to register, or visit https://www.dofe.org/takepart/central-england/northamptonshire/. - Depending on how long you need to volunteer, libraries have a range of activities and projects you can get involved with. The list below is intended to provide suggestions; use it as a starting point to discuss with library staff what you want to achieve during your volunteering experience. Some of the activities listed below are all things that you can do during individual sessions at the library, but you could also try taking on a long term project over several weeks if you want to challenge yourself, especially if you are completing silver or gold levels.
