'Your Library' has missed you!
The Reconnect Festival is about bringing our community back together.
Through engaging talks, practical workshops, and exciting new initiatives, we will explore the themes of community, literacy, time & space, and sustainability, to reconnect you with your library, with your Council, and with each other.
There has never been a better time to become a library member! Join during May and automatically go in the draw to win one of 13 fabulous local prizes.
Library membership is free and forever.
