 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.

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.
