The Mabo Library says “thank-you” to its 2012 volunteers

The Eddie Koiki Mabo Library staff celebrated the end of a great year for our three Special Collections volunteers today. A thank-you morning tea was held so that kind words of thanks and friendship could be shared over cake, chocolates and pikelets! This year Marg Naylor donated 190 hours working with the University Art Collection. Jennifer Tompkins donated 110 hours of her time working with Narelle Harrison (Library staff member), primarily in the Library Archives collection. Lastly, Liz Downes donated a 177 hours of her time researching Special Collections, and writing for the Library News Blog under the series name “Fossickings in Special Collections”. All three volunteers freely gave us the benefit of their skills and knowledge, and have made a fantastic contribution to the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library Special Collections.
