Library thanks volunteers, welcomes pottery display 

The CQUniversity Mackay Library Society and Film and Arts Mackay (FAM) will thank their volunteers for hard work and fundraising efforts throughout 2012, with a special function on Wednesday, November 7 from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

Library Society President Robyn Eva said the volunteers continued to be an important support system for students and staff.

"Our volunteers work hard throughout the year to raise funds to purchase books, equipment and items to support both students and staff and this is our opportunity to thank them."   

Ms Eva said that volunteer fundraising efforts had also enabled the Library Society/FAM to donate two $1000 scholarships to continuing students at CQUniversity - one to an emerging student from the STEPS program and one to the highest ranking first-year student in the Bachelor of Medical Imaging program.  Both scholarships are specifically for Mackay-based students.

The function will also launch a display by the Pioneer Potters Group in the cabinets purchased by the Library Society earlier this year.  Pottery in the display will be available for the public to purchase throughout the month.  

Anyone interested in finding out more about volunteering for the Library Society/FAM is invited to ring 4940 7536 or visit our website http://www.cqu.edu.au/library/locations/mackay/mackay-library-society for more information.
