Library volunteers in Enfield have been recognised for their dedication as part of the borough's celebrations during volunteer’s week.

The hard-working helpers contributed more than 2,700 hours last year to keep the libraries in Enfield running.

A group of 40 people have given their time to support the local libraries and have fulfilled roles from assisting people with computers or aiding adults who have English as a second language.

Councillor Bambos Charalambous, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for culture, leisure, youth and localism, gave out certificates to volunteers at the event.

He said: “Volunteers make an important contribution to our libraries and we always want to hear from people of all ages who can give some of their time to help out.

“We would especially love to hear from people who would be interested in signing up to be a summer reading challenge ambassador.

"These roles support children with the national summer reading challenge, for which this year’s theme is ‘Creepy House’.”
