Library and Information Week is underway and our library users have the chance to win a family pack of cinema passes.
Whilst you’re in one of our Sunshine Coast Libraries, discover the many services and resources on offer.
The theme for 2018 is Find Yourself in a Library.
Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said our libraries play an important role within the community.
“Each of our libraries are vibrant community hubs where people from all walks of life can connect and interact with other people or with the multitude of free programs and services available,” Cr McKay said.
“Library and Information Week gives our libraries an opportunity to showcase their value to the community in a fun way.
“There are a range of exciting events planned to celebrate the week and there will literally be something to suit all ages and tastes.”
