This is the week where we celebrate the work that library and information workers do all around Australia.

Every year in May, libraries and information services throughout Australia showcase their resources and services to their communities, through programs and events. Whether it's a library in your school, community, university, hospitals, cultural or law institutions, this week is an opportunity to learn more about what they do and the important roles they play in our local community, work and personal lives.

To celebrate the South Perth Libraries will be hosting four free events over the week.

  • Make your own Story with James Foley - booking essential
