Are you someone who enjoys interacting with people and feel that volunteering on a regular basis would suit you? Then you may be interested in joining our Library, Museum, Gallery (LMG) Volunteer Program.

By joining us you will work in an engaging, collaborative, supportive and safe working environment. We aspire to make the volunteer experience an enjoyable and rewarding one, providing professional and ongoing training and development excursions and social events throughout the year. We ask you for a commitment to training and to a regularly rostered shift, which may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, over the duration of at least one year.

  • Selecting and delivering books to housebound patrons, retirement villages, seniors groups and nursing homes
