We’ve been celebrating Library Lovers Day in Blue Mountains City Libraries today, hope you managed to get along to your local branch library and tell the staff there you love them!
At all branches we celebrated with heart-shaped chocolates but went all-out at Katoomba with cake, Steampunk performers and speeches. The cake was ’embroidered’ with our Read Watch Play 2013 logo and Library Manager, Vicki Edmunds, explained to the 40-off attendees that this campaign not only promotes our core business of encouraging the art and pleasure of reading but also promotes other media – film, television and performance art and playing – playing with your friends and family, board games, online games, field games.
Councillors Chris Van der Kley, Mick Fell and Geordie Williamson came along to support the event and each gave a small speech emphasising the importance of libraries to all members of our community.
Mrs Chatsalot from the Blue Mountains steampunk group explained what she and her friends do – letting their inner creative sci-fi neo-Victorian side out via beautiful clothing and performance. The group was kind enough to come along to add some glamour and atmosphere to Library Lovers Day and stayed chatting and answering questions from the audience. You will be able to catch up with them at Ironfest in Lithgow in April this year.
We hope you all had a lovely Library Lovers Day.
