Adventures in Space and Time (04/05/2021)

Celebrate Library and Information Week with an Adventures in Space and Time #AusLibChat! Join us on Tuesday May 4, 9pm AEST. This year Library and Information Week occurs 17 – 23 May 2021.

Libraries and information services are places of adventure. People who connect with them take a journey, whether it’s in search of specific information, serendipitous browsing through vast collections, or coming together with others to learn something new.
