Can you help?
The Book Bunker at Westmead Children’s Hospital is looking for some more volunteers. Some long term volunteers have retired after 15-20 years, so new faces will be most welcome to join the team to assist either on a casual basis when current voluntary library staff members are ill or on holidays, or on a regular shift (monthly, fortnightly or weekly).
We have recently transitioned to Oliver and try to have 2-3 volunteers rostered on each week day from 10am-3pm. Our aim is to ease the stress and boredom of children who are often in hospital for long periods of time. Ambulatory patients, or parents, visit the library to browse or read in a cosy and colourful environment. Bed-bound patients may select from a trolley taken to the wards by the volunteers each day.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact contact Eva Blaik on firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. You will be welcomed with open arms.
