Following a reorganization of library provision in Gateshead in 2017 Whickham Library became a Volunteer Library. We opened in July 2017. We are now staffed by a team of approximately 50 volunteers working across Monday to Saturday every week providing a quality service for the local community.
Whickham Volunteer Library Association became a Charitable Incorporated organisation registered with the Charity Commission on the 23 April 2018. This designation will support us as we plan for our future. Our aspiration is to continue to provide an excellent library service in Whickham, at the heart of our local community
