Volunteers are recruited to assist with programs such as our home library deliveries (delivering books on a monthly basis or one-on-one visits to housebound clients) and also conversation circle sessions. 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 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.

Applications for work experience placements up until the end of November 2023 have now CLOSED and no further applications will be accepted for 2023. We will be contacting those who have applied shortly.

Updates about 2024 applications will be provided on this website in the future.

There are very limited Community Service placements available in 2023. Please contact the library branch you are interested in if you have any enquiries.
