Volunteering at the State Library 

Volunteering at the State Library offers a unique and rewarding opportunity to discover our resources and collections, to interact with our clients and be involved in the many events held at the State Library.

As a volunteer, you could be involved in sorting and indexing collection materials, ushering at concerts, assisting at book launches, helping with school holiday activities or carrying out minor documents repairs with our Conservation team. 

Volunteering will provide you with an opportunity to learn about and contribute to the State Library and community as a whole.

If you would like to discuss volunteering at the State Library please contact Mary Doyle on (08) 9427 3327 or email volunteers@slwa.wa.gov.au.


Spotlight on volunteers

Each month we spotlight the great work that one or a group of volunteers do for the State Library

Volunteers in The Place

If you are heading to The Place, you might come across one of our wonderful volunteers. This group of volunteers is there to actively engage children and parents in literacy based activities developed around a central theme. 

The responsibilities of volunteers in The Place include setting up the activities, facilitating and supervising small groups of children, inviting children and parents to join in the activities, packing away the materials at the end of the session and ensuring the area is tidy. 

Volunteers in this area have made a great difference to the area, actively helping to promote the Better Beginnings program and supporting one of the State Library's strategic directions, to 'champion literacy and learning'.

Current Positions 

Please note that the State Library screens its volunteers and some positions may require a Police Clearance or Working With Children Card.
