Trustee Volunteers

Applications for trustee positions falling vacant in autumn 2015 are now open.

Could you

  • Think strategically about the long-term interests of the Library?

  • Listen to others’ views and contribute your own to help reach decisions collectively?
  • Collaborate effectively with the Library’s professional staff?

  • Champion the cause and reputation of the Library, identifying and engaging potential new supporters


If so, why not offer your time, energy and expertise to the Library as a Trustee?

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.
