National Water Week

AWA Water Week

We are celebrating Water Week 2021 with some special Storytime events, new books and a competition.   

Caring for Country

The theme for this year's Water Week is “Caring for Water and Country”. The Gumbaynggirr word for water is ngaarlu (pronounced nar-loo) and the ocean, gaagal (pronounced ga-gal) is the totem of the Gumbaynggirr Nation. Water is vital for all living things.

Dreamtime Storytime at the Library

Join us for Storytime in the Library, where this week the stories will be Elder-led including dreamtime and modern stories about water, music and craft.

Reserve your spot at Storytime

While you're at the Library, why not choose from our brand new selection of water and sustainability themed books.
