Library Thursday: Australian libraries promotion and a new revew



A short promotional video to remind Australians in the National year of Reading that Australia's libraries are places of knowledge, culture, community and wonder. Everyone is welcome and most things are free. 


Did you know that you can order items from the NSW State Library through your local public library, at very low cost? You then collect them from and return them to the local library.


Your local library will probably also welcome suggestions for additions to its collection - they want to include items that local residents want to read/view.  It's a great way to make information about people with Down syndrome widely available in your community. 

A new and thoughtful review of Jan Gothard's book, Greater Expectations, published in 2011, was published by the Australian Review of Public Affairs this week. Greater Expectations is available for loan to members from our library.

The Down Syndrome NSW library is one of our major members' assets - check out the collection here, and arrange loans in person, by phone (9841 4411) or email library@dsansw.org.au
