The City of Wanneroo acknowledged Alicia Norman, who helps with the Books on Wheels service at Clarkson Library, Peggy Carter from the Wanneroo Regional Museum Community History Centre and Angie Beck, who volunteers at the Yanchep Two Rocks Library.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said volunteers were the backbone of the community.

‘From teaching children about Wanneroo history to delivering books to residents who are unable to visit the library, heritage and library volunteers support a variety of cultural activities within the City,’ she said.

‘Our cultural programs are an essential part of the City because they transfer knowledge and bond the community by creating a sense of belonging.’

The function recognised 79 volunteers from Buckingham House, Cockman House, the Community History Centre, the museum, the gallery, City libraries, Books on Wheels and Friday at the Flicks.
