Open Day & Working Bee Postponed

We have had to cancel the Open Day and now the Working Bee because we don’t have enough hands to do the work required to make these events happen.  The funding we received from a local philanthropist for Celine’s role has now been exhausted.  We need to work out if we are going to grow as a cheap hire non profit or morph into a co op style share operation.  Either way in the short term….

Fortnightly member roles available now

Keeping the Library running smoothly requires less than 20 members to volunteer fortnightly for 3-4 hours.

Call Sasha on 0422 641 474 if you think you could offer to take on any of these for 6 months or longer.

        • We need 3 more people who can volunteer fortnightly 7.45- 10.15am Tuesdays.
        • We need a person who likes organising meetings and taking minutes to help us set and hold quarterly meetings to create a report to provide to the Mullum Cares board – the Library is a project of Mullum Cares.
        • We need a person who likes bookkeeping to ensure our accounts with Mitre 10 & Farmcare are getting paid on time and that all receipts for Library items are correctly saved so they are easy to locate if we need to call on the warranty.  If you have Xero experience and can help with ensuring these records are manged that’s something we can look for funding for – currently we pay an accountant to do this work and produce quarterly financial reports.  
        • We need a person who likes spreadsheets to take on the record keeping of the care & repair effort that goes into maintaining the Library assets.  This is the crucial next step in our evolution as we are regularly asked now “how much does it cost to deliver a share library operation?”.  Until we can quantify this we must postpone our campaign for all book libraries to expand to become Library’s of Stuff.  
        • We need a social media person or two.

Maintaining our 1000+ items in the Library

From little jobs like adding some bunting to your next load of washing to dropping off or picking up items for repair to different repairers in the region there are so many tasks required to care for and repair the Library assets.  Listing and updating these jobs online would take a massive effort so we just write them on a board in the Library and cross them off once done.  Old school.  So we’d love you to drop in and take a job off the list whenever you can during the Library opening hours.  Then record the effort on the form below:)

Buy or Borrow Good Quality = Acting on Climate Change

Our tester and tagger

Did you know that it is our duty to test and tag all electrical tools that are lent out? We have a wonderful volunteer, Gus, who does this and has done so since we’ve opened. He’s not very well known in the library community as he often comes in at night to test and...
