Vol­un­teer­ing at the Library

If our hopes of build­ing a bet­ter and safer world are to become more than wish­ful think­ing, we will need the engage­ment of vol­un­teers more than ever.” — Kofi Annan

The Library hosts a range of pro­grams and ser­vices that relies on the gen­eros­i­ty of volunteers:

  • Book’a’­Book (Item delivery)
  • Read & Write (Adult Literacy)
  • Library Linkup (Social support)
  • Con­ver­sa­tion­al Eng­lish (ESL conversation)
  • Gen­er­al assistance

If you would like to be involved in our vol­un­teer pro­gram, please com­plete the Vol­un­teer Reg­is­tra­tion Form and we’ll be in con­tact when a role opens up for you. 

Alter­na­tive­ly, you can con­tact the library between 8am-6pm Mon­day to Fri­day on 8950 0555 or [email protected]​astc.​nt.​gov.​au and we can answer any ques­tions you might have.
