Library Lovers Day
Published on 06 February 2019
Move over St Valentine’s because 14 February is also Library Lovers’ Day and Federation Council libraries will be celebrating with the community.
Library Lovers’ Day is a chance for everyone to connect with their library and share the library love!
The initiative, coordinated by the Australian Library and Information Association, aims to raise the profile of the services that libraries offer. Federation Council, through its membership with Riverina Regional Library, operates branches in Corowa, Howlong and Mulwala. A mobile library service also visits the towns of Urana, Oaklands, Boree Creek and Rand on a weekly basis.
Fostering a love of reading, supporting lifelong learning and providing a space for people to connect, libraries play an important role in local communities.
In addition to the extensive range of reading material and DVD's, local libraries offer free computer and wi-fi access, author talks, reading clubs, school holiday programs, storytime sessions for children, community programs and family and local history information – to name just some of the services.
Federation Council is really proud of the vibrant and engaging library spaces across the Council area.
