Library volunteers / Volunteering in Libraries ACT

Volunteers play an important role in enhancing and extending the services that Libraries ACT provides to the Canberra community. We recognise and appreciate the significant effort, support and commitment from our volunteers.

Currently we have volunteers who:

  • Sort ephemera and photos at the ACT Heritage Library
  • Deliver items to members of the community who are physically unable to visit the library and often socially isolated
  • Facilitate English Conversation Classes
  • Sort former library items for the Book Roundabout project
  • Run social programs
  • Help members of the Canberra community improve their literacy skills
  • Assist with the running of the Makerspace at Civic
