The Feminist Library is run entirely by volunteers. A core group of management committee members are supported by a strong collective of regular volunteers, who donate their time and skills to make the library what it is.
- Help us develop the Feminist Library online catalogue.
- Research, order and review new publications.
- Help staff the library during our regular opening hours.
- Connect with other feminist groups and organisations.
- Contribute to our newsletter.
- Help us with our fundraising effort.
- Organise our stall at events and conferences around London.
- Cover general admin duties.
We invite people with specialist skills to join one of our sub-groups, but we also welcome people that would like to develop skills in the following areas:
- the fundraising sub-group researches and applies for grants, administrates our standing order scheme and evaluates/develops our fundraising strategy, developing ideas & campaigns.
- the newsletter sub-group plans and creates our seasonal Feminist Library newsletter.
- the building sub-group works on premises-related matters and researches long-term solutions for housing the collection.
- the publicity group makes sure everyone is aware of the Feminist Library’s role and activities.
- the events group create and organises events held at the Feminist Library.
The Feminist Library is always looking for new volunteers and all feminists are welcome to get involved.
