Library volunteer

Library volunteers assist the Sub-Librarian with various projects associated with the care and day to day running of the Library, including showcasing our various treasures during Library Open Days. The Cathedral Library acquires and preserves historic books and works of interest; these books and treasures aren't just artefacts, they're tools for exploration, study and research for all to discover.
