Dowerin Community Resource Centre & Public Library
Community Resource Centre
The Community Resource Centre is a Not - For - Profit community based organisation run by a Coordinator, Coordinators Assistant, Trainee, Volunteers and Management Committee.
Community Resource Centres provide local access to a range of services otherwise not readily available to smaller regional communities. Many centres are Centrelink agents with others running a bank, post office and visitor centre or all of the above.
With Community Resource Centres located in more than 100 communities throughout Western Australia you’re never far from your Community Resource Centre, which means you’re never far from home or the office.
We are situated in the old Challenge Bank Building, which is prime location for us.
