Surrey Libraries


Duke of Edinburgh Roles

We offer volunteer placements for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. A regular time commitment is required as these places are in great demand and are offered on a first come first served basis. You will be asked to help with routine library tasks such as shelving, helping people operate the self-service machines, presenting notice boards and finding books. You may be offered some project work. If you volunteer during the summer you will support the Reading Challenge. At the end of your time with us we will complete the required assessment for the award.

Expressions of Interest for Gold level Duke of Edinburgh will be considered at any time.

Opportunities for Silver and Bronze Level Duke of Edinburgh awards for this year will close on 15th November for placements starting immediately and will re-open on 31st March 2020 for placements starting in May 2020. Preference will be given to those requesting a six month placement.
