Read Manchester World Book Day Volunteering

2nd March 08:25 to 12:00
Help to celebrate World Book Day by distributing free books to the public.

NB: To book onto this opportunity please email Helen Beesley directly –

The Literacy Trust are looking for volunteers to distribute free books to the public and sharing information about libraries as part of their celebrations of World Book Day. A Read Manchester team member, Library staff or a Lead Literacy Champion will assist the volunteers with any questions.

Volunteers will need to arrive at 0825 at Manchester Central Library for a health and safety briefing before being allocated a location. Travel to further locations will be by tram and you will be refunded for your travel.

There may be the need to lift and carry boxes of books, although this doesn’t rule anyone out of volunteering. Let us know in advance if you are unable to do this.

If you are interested in volunteering please email as soon as possible.
