The aim of the library is to meet cultural needs of the society and to promote reading in various ways. As lately the libraries may be the only cultural centre in some of the districts of the city it has a second role as well – to promote cultural activities and enable all members of local society to participate in them. Volunteers will work with the local community in one branch of the City Public Library in Gdynia, helping the librarians with typical librarian tasks and supporting the organization of cultural activities.
