Friends of the Library and Archives (FOLA)

The FOLA volunteers assist the Library staff with resource processing, shelving, shelf reading and display tasks. What they do each week makes an enormous difference to the appearance of the Library and to the speed with which resources are processed and out on the shelves ready for staff and students to use. Your assistance with displays helps create a positive and cheerful environment which is conducive to reading for pleasure and learning. By carrying out these essential tasks they also free up Library staff to provide extra services that we could not possibly hope to otherwise provide. If you would like to be involved assisting in the Library, please contact Glynis O’Neill on 9442 1520, or for assisting with Archives, contact Freida French on 9442 1532.
