The entries are in and it’s time to vote for your favourite in our “Change History” competition. We asked you to take a photo from our collection and reimagine it, and your imaginations ran wild! Dinosaurs in Tea Tree Gully, UFOs in St Agnes, come and see them all at the library service desk and have your say in who will walk away with one of the Kindle Fire prizes.
The lucky winners will be announced at a special event in the library Saturday 19th May at 2pm.
This Monday night and Thursday morning don’t miss out on this wonderful exhibition by Carole Simmonds of the Tea Tree Gully and Districts Historical Society. Travel back in time through the most intriguing slides from our collection and discover the history of Tea Tree Gully with us in the Community Learning Centre.
Wine and cheese will be provided on Monday evening (7-8pm) and morning tea on Thursday (10-11am). Bookings are free and can be made at the library or by calling (08) 8397 7333.
It’s time for teenagers to take over the Library…well, for one night at least. This Thursday night (20 Jan) from 6pm to 9pm there will be music and games and run of the Library for 13-18 year olds. Choose a CD from the collection to play on the stereo, then challenge your friends to a game on Wii Sports or Playstation.
Have some laughs with Twister or Celebrity Head, check out your favourite sites or do some random net surfing. It’s up to you! To book in, give us a call (8397 7333) and have your Library card handy. I promise no one will ‘Shhhh!’
Say Hello Rhyme
Last night we had a fabulous time when over 35 children and their families came to the library for a special Classic Tales Bedtime Storytime.
Everyone wore their pyjamas and brought their teddies to share lots of stories. We read some classic tales aswell as some modern family stories.
Along the way there was lots of dancing and singing too. Luckily, we all had enough energy left to make a magical star wand, which everyone took home.

If you were here and shared the fun, let us know what you thought and if you have any ideas for the future.
