Reader’s Festival

If you love reading then you are going to love The City of Tea Tree Gully Library’s first ever Readers Festival on the 5th & 6th August. Join us as we celebrate the joy of reading over two fun filled days of exciting programs for adults, families and young people.

If you have ever thought about joining a book group or even starting your very own then the Book Discussion Group (BDG) Open Day is for you. This event, on Friday the 6th August from 3:00pm – 5:00pm in the Library’s Relaxed Reading Area, provides an opportunity to learn what a Book Discussion Group is all about, join an existing group or speak with the Library’s Adult Programs Project Officer about starting your own group. Meet the members of local Book Discussion Groups. Hear what they have read and discussed; their loved and hated titles ands see the range of book sets available for loan. No bookings are required.

Booklovers looking to enhance their reading experience will love our Good Reading Online and Library Thing hands-on workshop on Friday 6th August at 3:00-4:00pm (early session) and 4:00-5:00pm (late session) in the Library’s Training Room.  Good Reading Online is a fantastic Australian database with thousands of easy to read independent book reviews, interesting Australian and International articles, author profiles, stories on writers’ houses, bookshops, short stories, book trivia and much more. Plus, learn how to use LibraryThing to review books, find similar authors and ‘tag’ titles – all from the Library catalogue. To make the most of the workshop, experience using the Internet is essential. Bookings can be made by phoning 8397 7333.
