EU-Erasmus programme - If you are a student on a degree course within the European Union seeking a placement/internship under the EU-Erasmus programme please note we have no openings in 2013. If these become available they will be advertised here.



Trustee volunteers

As a registered charity, the Library has a board of Trustees who are responsible for the long-term well-being and effectiveness of the Library. Besides thinking about services and facilities, Trustees must ensure that the Library safeguards its assets, meets its financial obligations and functions within the legal framework required of a charity.

If so, we would love to hear from you. Applications for trustee positions falling vacant in autumn 2014 are now open. Please download the following documents:

- Trustee Application form [Rich Text Format] [PDF Format]

- Becoming a Trustee [PDF Format]

The closing date for applications is Monday 12th May 2014.

For application queries please contact the Librarian's PA on 020 7766 4712 (librarian@londonlibrary.co.uk).
