There are many ways to get involved in the local libraries, including joining the Friends of Noosa Library or Friends of Mill Place (Cooroy Library). There is also the option to volunteer in such areas as helping others learn to read and write, helping seniors by reading to them or choosing books for delivery to them, or helping in local studies, heritage and genealogy.
Noosa Library Service values the involvement of volunteers in assisting to deliver a wide range of programs that enhance the libraries' services to the community.
Adult Literacy Tutors
Adult Literacy Tutors deliver one-to-one support or are involved in group classes to assist adults to improve their basic literacy and numeracy skills. Recruitment of tutors for this program is undertaken at certain times of the year and tutors will undertake a Community Adult Literacy Teaching program before commencing their tutoring role.
Home Library Service
Volunteers select and/or deliver library items to members of the community who are unable to personally visit the library.
Computer Tutors provide one-to-one
assistance and training on various aspects of computer and technology use.
Volunteers read on a regular basis to clients in aged care facilities, respite centres and hospitals who have limited ability to read independently.
Volunteers provide assistance to library patrons in family history research, and using library and online family history resources.
Local Studies and Heritage
Volunteers engage in research and writing, interviewing, and archiving activities in the Heritage Library that assist in documenting Noosa's history and heritage.
