There are requirements to become a library volunteer, such as undertaking training with South East Volunteers.

Work Experience – Library Customer Service

Monash Public Library Service offers a very limited number of work experience placements each year to secondary students in Year 10 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.

Applications for 2024 have now closed. We will not be accepting any more applications.







Community Service/Duke of Edinburgh

There are no community service or Duke of Edinburgh placements available in 2024.
