This week 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. 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.

The theme for this year is Adventures in Space and Time – from sending actual books to a space station and hearing an astronaut read to over a million children in Australia [find out more about that here], or exploring and connecting in online spaces, to revisiting the past, connecting with stories and memories of those who came before us.

To celebrate the week, we took the opportunity to chat to some of our staff about how they read, what they like reading and if they have written/or are thinking of writing something – check out the discussion by clicking the image below. 

We want to hear from you and there are prizes up for grabs too! Watch the video and find out how you can win.

So why not, make the time to connect with your libraries, and take an adventure – in space and time!
