Library and Information Week 21-27 May

JCU Libraries are celebrating Library and Information Week from 21-27 May, 2018. Library and Information Week aims to raise the profile of libraries and information service professionals in Australia and showcase the many and varied resources and services that libraries provide to the community. The event has been organised by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) to promote the value of reading and literacy, the importance of Australia's book industry and the role of libraries.

The theme for this year is Find yourself in a library. On Wednesday, 23 May from 10am-11am, the JCU libraries in Townsville and Cairns will host a simultaneous celebration for Library and Information Week.  We invite you to:
  • Come in and see our display,  
  • Add a post to one of our social media sites – Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #LIW2018 - telling us why you found yourself in the library today,
  • Then enjoy a Freddo frog on us.
  • Have your say about the refurbishment of the Cairns library ground floor using our survey.
The library staff find themselves in the library every day… because we love it! Ask us why!
