Our dedicated and invaluable volunteer team is made up of people of all ages and backgrounds who generously contribute their time and energy to a wide variety of volunteer projects.

The volunteers participate in both front-of-house projects such as providing building tours for visitors, assisting with exhibitions and music performances and back-of-house projects which include historical document transcription and working with our collections .
The volunteer program greatly enhances the capabilities of State Library and provides a very enjoyable and interesting way to become involved with and to support one of Australia’s great cultural institutions.
We have a wide range of interesting volunteer projects available, however:
On occasion we have volunteer positions available during the school holidays for 14-17 year olds.
If you are interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in a placement as a component of your tertiary studies, you are encouraged to apply for a State Library Fieldwork placement.
If you are seeking a professional internship with State Library please note that we are able to accommodate a limited number of interns via our partnership with Australian Internships.
Australian Internships is a commercial entity and requires the payment of fees for registration and ongoing management of your placement/s. Registration with this company does not guarantee a placement at State Library.
