 Join the Mapleton Community Library – If you live on or near the Blackall Range please drop in and become a member of this wonderful community library. Contact Us for more information.

A few members are still discovering that their membership needs renewal in order to borrow.

Volunteering. The Library depends on volunteers for everything from fund raising to housekeeping. One thing most volunteers enjoy is a few hours on the desk fortnightly.

If you would like to volunteer please leave contact details at the desk. Training is given with lots of on-the-job support. Recent volunteer training has included library processes and the Dewey system.
