Typically we recruit members in September.  Watch the bulletins and the library blog for meeting announcements.  We may take new members throughout the year if we have positions to fill.  Please speak with Library Staff if you’re interested.

All Library Club members earn service hours for their completed shifts/meetings.  Members are expected to treat their shifts/meetings like jobs and attend.  If you are unable to attend your shift, you are expected to find another member to swap shifts with.  If you are unable to attend a group meeting, make sure to inform the other members in advance. 

Members who have displayed consistent, reliable service will be invited to special club events like club parties to recognise their commitment.
