With many libraries around Adelaide being extremely active with promoting some very exciting events and programs to coincide with the The National year of Reading 2012, it seems Unley Libraries have thrown down the gauntlet by staging a short story competition with fantastic prizes.
If you're a lover of books and inspired by reading, why not take it to the next level and write your own short story. Get those creative juices really flowing and enter your masterpiece in the Love 2 Write Writing Competition conducted by Unley Libraries. It can be done, I assure you. They're only asking for less than 1,000 words. Don't think about it any longer - just write it down.
For further information and to obtain entry forms please contact Unley Libraries, (phone: 8372 5111) or online.
As a member of several libraries, who appreciates their excellent service and enjoys their special events, I am interested to know what your favourite library is, and which events you particularly enjoy. Join in the discussion in the comments, and let us know what you think.
Norwood library, although small has both charm and character, as it lies in a heritage listed building. The librarians featuring mostly are friendly, chatty and really, really helpful. They will get in anything for you and even let me know you have the option of submitting an application for purchase of an article, as well. It goes to the board and may be purchased, if they believe it is in the interest of their reading public. I've already had at least 2 items purchased to date. They also have a fairly eclectic DVD collection; alot of Dendy cinema items and foreign indie films, which are often little gems. I love visiting Norwood library and although I'm also a member of another library, it's inevitably Norwood I come back to again and again. Plus Cafe Palazzo is across the rd. It also has that great little kid's reading area, with a couch, which is so cosy, too.
