The Mapleton Community Library depends on our volunteers who provide everything from fund raising to housekeeping.

Most volunteers enjoy a few hours working on the desk fortnightly. Not only is this time to get to know other volunteers and community members, but it provides an opportunity to receive appreciative feedback from our members, who value the Library and its facilities.

If you would like to volunteer please leave contact details at the Library desk.  We are particularly interested in any story tellers for our Saturday morning sessions. Could that you?

Training is given by those of us with qualifications, skills and many years of experience in all areas of fund raising, maintaining the collection and organising the Library.

Volunteers receive lots of ongoing and on-the-job support.

Dewey Catalogue training

Recent volunteer training has included library processes and learning about the Dewey cataloguing system used in the Non Fiction area.





Some volunteers have received training in providing a home delivery service of books to the housebound, on behalf of Sunshine Coast Regional Library.
