Volunteering for YPRL

Volunteers

Volunteering is a great way to make a difference and be involved in your community. Yarra Plenty Regional Library relies on the valuable support of all its volunteers throughout Banyule, Nillumbik and Whittlesea who help us everyday to create an Australia where all belong.

Our volunteers are of all ages, and come from different cultural backgrounds and professions.
There are many volunteering options at Yarra Plenty Regional Library, and it’s a fun place to be!

Branch Volunteering

  • Collection maintenance support as directed by branch manager
  • Assistance in organising and presenting programs
  • Specialised program delivery
  • Assistance with head office tasks
  • Ambassador roles both within branches and outreaching in community

Outreach Volunteering

  • Home Library service, where materials are delivered to housebound residents.
  • Words on Wheels, an interactive storytelling session that takes place in aged care facilities.

Volunteer storytellers facilitate a fun interactive session with seniors in the facility on a monthly basis.
