Goulburn Valley Libraries

Purpose

Volunteers provide a Home Library Service, the aim of which is to ensure that people who are physically unable to attend the library, continue to receive a library service.  Both Shepparton and Mooroopna libraries provide this free service.

Program

The Home Library Service is available to residents of Shepparton and Mooroopna who are housebound, subject to the availability of volunteers.

Volunteers select books, magazines, DVD’s and other library materials, according to the preferences of the library patron, and deliver then on a fortnightly or monthly basis.

The service is provided with the support of volunteers from The Friends of the Library, after completion of a police check.

Volunteers are required to have the following:

  • Be a member of the Friends of the Library ($3 annual fee)
  • Current Drivers licence
  • Comprehensive car insurance

Volunteers will be provided training, information and support in their role.
