Volunteering

Home library service volunteers select and deliver books and resources to the community.

Their home visits are a highlight for homebound library members.

It's a great opportunity to share and discover favourite books, authors and films.

Join the home library service volunteer team:

  • support Kingston community members
  • learn new skills
  • meet new and like-minded people
  • chat about books with fellow book-lovers

Email homelibrary@kingston.vic.gov.au or call 1300 135 668.



Community Bus

Kingston City Council Community Bus visits Chelsea Library fortnightly.

Join us for afternoon tea, good company and maybe a book or film recommendation or two.

The Community Bus also offers a number of regular services assisting people to access key services and facilities within the community, such as shopping centres, the local pharmacist, the post office, their senior citizens club and recreational facilities such as Waves Leisure centre.
