On Wednesday 1 February, Glen Waverley Library will close at 6pm for essential electrical works.
Library staff work as part of a team to provide high quality customer and reference service to the public. Monash Public Library Service also provides work experience, library industry placement and volunteering opportunities.
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.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please register your interest here. Once you have registered you will be contacted to receive more information on the induction process.
To find out more information on what a home library volunteer does, contact the Positive Ageing Librarian on 9518 3030. For the conversation circle program, contact the Diversity & Inclusion Librarian on 9518 3030.
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 June 2023 will open shortly. Updates will be provided on this website in the coming weeks. Applications for the second half of 2023 will open later in the year. Updates will be provided on this website
Community Service placements are not yet certain for 2023. Updates will be provided on this website.
