We Find Stuff! - Library Week and Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Well, it's Library and Information Week for 2011 - a week that is celebrated by libraries of all kinds right across the country - and as part of the celebrations we're holding an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea for university staff.

It's at the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library this Thursday (26th May) at 10.30am. Just come up to the first floor and follow the smell of scones (but we would appreciate it if you let us know you were coming - catering and all that).

This year the theme of Library and Information Week is (drum roll, please):



"We find stuff!"


Yeah.

Oh, but wait, there's more! The marketing slogan we are encouraged to use with that is: "We look up stuff! We catalogue stuff! We research stuff! We know stuff!"

It was rather difficult trying to come up with a book display that can capture the essence of the phrase "we find stuff!", but if you come into the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library building in Townsville, you can see what we've, ah, "found".

Why not pop by for the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday and "see what stuff we can find for you!"

Next year, I'm hoping we can push for the theme: "Librarians - not complete dorks!"
