Work Experience – Library Customer Service

Monash Public Library Service offers a limited number of work experience placements each year to secondary students in Year 10 and 11 with an interest in a career in libraries and the community. 
Our work experience program aims to showcase to students the diverse range of work undertaken by our library service.  We hope all students will finish the week with a deeper appreciation of the services offered and their importance to the community of Monash.
Work experience placements are uncertain for 2022. Updates will be provided on this website.

Community Service

Community Service placements are not yet certain for 2022. Updates will be provided on this website.
