There are various ways you can get involved, help out and stay in touch with what is happening.


Social Networking is a great way to keep in touch so if you are on Facebook please sign up to the 'Darlington Friends of the Libraries' group and chat to like minded people.

If you are a user of Twitter then the Friends feed can be found at - @BefriendLibrary

Public Meetings

We will be holding meetings for all the supporters to attend. Please keep an eye on this website for further news of those.

Volunteer Your Time

The Library service has a variety of jobs which can be done on a voluntary basis, from helping out at children's book sessions to transcribing documents there is something to suit everyone.

Use your Allocation

Many people don't realise that they can take out 15 books from any of the libraries at a time. The more books we log out of the library the better the usage figures. Carry home as many as you can each time you visit!
