Volunteer librarian to set up community library in Tonga

A newly formed community library in Kolovai on Tonga's main island Tongatapu is looking for a librarian to help get the library sorted. 

They have been given a large number of cancelled books from Auckland libraries and have already been shipped 100 boxes of boxes-mostly childrens and adult nonfiction. 

The library has been mostly set up and painted, all ready for the shelves to be shipped over from Auckland to Kolovai. 

Accommodation on Kolovai would be free and there will be wifi. 

Ideally you would be able to start volunteering in August. 

For more information, please contact Kahoa Corbett ( or 021 074 6996) 

Closing date: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018
