Volunteers Week: Spotlight on Brady Meyers

Brady Meyers has been volunteering at the Gilgandra Shire Library for many years.

He first came to the library for school work-experience in year 10, and returned the following year as a volunteer.

Brady has clocked up over ten years of volunteer service to the Gilgandra community through the library.

He returned to volunteering this year after a break due to the pandemic, and library staff and customers were very glad to welcome him back.

Brady takes on a variety of tasks, including re-shelving returned books, audiobooks and toys, and preparing kits of activities for Storytime.

When asked what he likes about volunteering at the library, Brady said:

“It helps me to be able to connect with people face-to-face, and helps to keep me busy during the working week.”

Brady says he particularly likes shelving books, as he enjoys making sure they are in the correct order, so they can be easily found for the next borrower. Library customers and staff are very grateful for Brady’s work. Brady was asked what he would say to anyone else thinking of volunteering.

“Just give it a go! Let the results speak for themselves.”

 Brady is also looking forward to the move into the new GIL Library Hub later this year.

“It will be good to see a lot more space for people to enjoy.”
