We couldn’t open our doors without the help of a wonderful team of volunteers, many of them have been helping us for over thirty years!
Our most visible volunteers are the members who come in to the library to help you with your research, assist you to use the computer systems and give research advice. Research questions and brick walls can often be solved just by talking through a problem with a knowledgeable volunteer.
Then there’s the teams of volunteers you don’t see – the ones who help with indexing and cataloguing resources to put into the collections, prepare web content, help with digitisation, keep our computer systems running, provide conservation assistance and much more.
Other members help by serving on committees and assisting with planning and presenting our education program, running our Certificate and Diploma courses and answering research enquiries for those who can’t personally make it into the collections.
