Detailed description

Are you a bookworm? Do you love reading and want to share that with others. Based in the library, this role would involve helping the librarian by encouraging the prisoners to become engaged with books through a variety of methods, such as displays about particular authors. You would also be working alongside prisoners undertaking normal library tasks such as restocking bookshelves, repairing and covering books

 

No specific qualifications however a background in librarian work would be useful. Volunteers must have a mature outlook, be willing to help, be interested in others and be a good communicator. It would be helpful to be paitient, empathetic and a good listener
