Volunteer at Gympie Regional Libraries

Gympie Regional Libraries acknowledge and value the significant contribution that volunteers make to the community and to the library service in particular. 

Volunteers provide their valuable time to:

  • Home Library Service

  • Local History

  • Makerspace

  • Library Program and Event
     

Home Library Service

Do you want to help people access library materials while they stay in their own home?
Do you have a couple of spare hours per fortnight to help?

For over 50 years our amazing volunteers have supported library members who are unable to attend the library due to age, frailty or disability. Gympie Library needs volunteers to select and deliver library materials to library members on the home library service. Some of our Volunteers select library materials on behalf of home library service members, while others deliver library materials to home library service members who live within a 5km radius of the Gympie Library (some do both).
