World Poetry Day
World Poetry Day is celebrated on 21st March and was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. Its purpose is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world and, as the original UNESCO declaration says, to "give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements."

Enjoy this poetry by Abe Nouk.
Abe Nouk was illiterate when he arrived in Australia. Now an acclaimed spoken word poet and community educator, his poetry speaks the importance of education, the marginalisation of young Sudanese men and his fierce love for his adopted country. Nouk's book The child can be found in the Bluff Road Library.
The lyrics to Paul Kelly's songs have always been poetic, so it's no wonder that poets across time have inspired him. Press play to see one such poem. Kelly's book love is strong as death can be found in the Holloway Road Library.

Makerspace happens everyday during lunchtimes in both Campus Libraries.
So far this term students have created jewelry, felting, drawings and RockArt.
It's also great to see students from all year levels socialising as they create.
International Women's Day -March 8, 2021
A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.
So let's all choose to challenge.
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is ‘Choose to Challenge’. On March 8, we’ll be celebrating the power of choices. Every day, we can each actively choose to challenge stereotypes, call out gender bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. And, in doing so, we contribute to a more equal world.
Throughout March the library will be celebrating women, pop into the library and find a book about women (real and fictional), who challenged the world and made a difference.
