If you'd like to get involved with Old Hat Books, the radical library in the front room, please come along to one of our shifts and chat to us about it! We're always in need of volunteers and any commitment is welcome. We have meetings once a month, love organising events (open readings, workshops, fundraising gigs and film nights) and enjoy meeting new friendly book-lovers! We'll give you an induction and won't leave you alone on a shift until you feel confident. Next meeting Weds 10th Feb, come along!

Our shift times are:

Monday 4-8pm
Weds 4-8pm
Sat 4-8pm

If nobody is there it means we need you even more!

See you there!

Celia - OHB
