Words with Wine
Enjoy a glass of wine while listening to a published author speak about their work and read an excerpt or two. Most authors will share some information about their writing process, how and why they came to write their featured prose or poetry and they may share some interesting or entertaining related trivia. We aim to offer a blend of established and emerging authors in this series. Find out more.
Get the Facts
Get up to date information on a range of current topics in these sessions. Presenters are often from community groups, not for profit organisations and education bodies whose role is to provide information and education to the broader community. Sessions cover a wide variety of topics from estate planning to macular degeneration, antiques and collectibles to stress management.
Yearning for some child free time out? Mind Lounge is an opportunity to have a go at something creative. Try a craft, discover a new game or stretch your mind trying out something new, in a fun and expectation free workshop. The activities are designed to entertain and relax. They are facilitated by an experienced artist, teacher or community worker.
Special EditionOccasionally we have the opportunity to present well known figures in a larger venue. This is an opportunity to hear from celebrated authors, acclaimed illustrators, renowned experts and popular media personalities. There is usually a nominal fee charged for this event, however the South Perth Libraries strive to keep these events accessible to all.
Reflect is a series of local history talks presented by South Perth Local History Librarian Anthony Styan who will take you on adventures through archives and archaeology, and learn about the odd, original and often interesting history within the City of South Perth.
