Library and Information Week events at La Trobe

We are joining libraries from around Australia and New Zealand to celebrate Library and Information Week 2019 from 20 – 26 May 2019.

Library and Information Week aims to raise the profile of libraries and information service professionals in Australia and showcase the many and varied resources and services that libraries provide to the community.

Library and Information Week has been organised by the Australian Library and Information Association to promote the value of reading and literacy, the importance of Australia's book industry and the role of libraries.

This year the theme is Truth, Integrity, Knowledge and we will be hosting the following events:

National Simultaneous Storytime on Wednesday 22 May at 11am

Children from local childcare centres at Albury-Wodonga, Bendigo, Melbourne (Bundoora), Mildura and Shepparton will visit our campus libraries to listen to library staff read ‘Alpacas with Maracas’, written and illustrated by Matt Cosgrove.

Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday 23 May at 10.30am

Join us at the David Mann library at La Trobe’s Albury-Wodonga campus to share a cuppa in support of those impacted by cancer. Donations for the Cancer Council will be accepted on the day (not compulsory) or can be made using the Cancer Council fundraising website.
