Like a traditional library, the Cultivating Community Carlton Kitchen Library offers the community an opportunity to borrow kitchen appliances and equipment for short periods of time to support their latest cooking project, program or event. In addition, the library hosts cultural cooking workshops and community meal events.
The Carlton Kitchen Library is an exciting new addition to Melbourne’s share economy, which values maintaining a community resource rather than individual ownership. The library will contribute to the share economy by addressing barriers to home cooking, providing not only access to equipment but also skill building and social connection.
The role is to assist with library duty including: signing up new members, checking in/out items, receiving and recording donated items, and cleaning used items. You will also be helping us organise upcoming events and workshops, work on our communications such as social media, website and local marketing.
