Become a volunteer

Volunteering can offer great rewards for the volunteer – it can be an opportunity to develop skills, meet new people, and play an important role in your community.

Our GRLC Volunteer page is regularly updated with volunteer opportunities. Also keep a look out for our newsletter and social media pages for announcements.

Geelong Heritage Centre

Are you passionate about local history or genealogy? Volunteers at the Heritage Centre work on special projects that increase the accessibility of Geelong’s archival records and enable the public to find historic information about Geelong people, places and events. Volunteer projects may include the arranging, transcribing, indexing and digitising of both public and private records.

For more information please contact the Heritage Centre on 4201 0630 or email

Home Library Service

Currently no volunteer roles available.

Home Library Service volunteers have the opportunity to provide essential library services to community members who are unable to visit our libraries due to illness, injury and frailty.

Volunteers visit Home Library Service clients on a monthly basis to deliver selected library materials/and or holds directly to the client’s place of residence. Time commitment is approximately 2-3 hours per client per month with volunteers assisting around 2 - 4 clients depending on where the clients reside.

Working with Children Check

GRLC is a child safe and child friendly organisation committed to ensuring that all children who visit our libraries have the right to feel and be safe.  Volunteers are required to complete volunteer Police and Working with Children Checks as part of the selection process.
