10 things you never knew you could find in a library

Tuesday, 23 February 2016

The picture gallery is growing daily of all the #FabulousFinds.

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) has started a nationwide hunt for all those incredible things found in a library's collection.
Step inside or visit library websites and we know that everyone will be surprised and perhaps a little amazed at what you can find in a library's collections.

We're asking ALIA Members, FAIR followers and the public to send us an email with the short description of the #FabulousFinds and to attach a photo/s.

So far we've had some amazing entries beekeeping classes, sand sculptures, homework assistance club and even free compost!

Using the hashtag, #FabulousFinds, means that we can all join in together and share the conversation on social media. 
On Monday 23 May, the first day of Library and Information Week, ALIA will distil all of the #FabulousFinds into a list and issue a media release about 'the 10 things you never knew you could find in a library'.  

Join us and let's show Australia the undiscovered, the beautiful and the wonderful things that you never knew you find in a library collection.
