Has the build-up to the Commonwealth Games got you itching to try your hand at athleting? Well look no further than this year’s first ALIA Qld Catchup of the year, complete with… Lawn Bowls!

ALIA SA Inclusive Libraries Forum

The ideal library is one that supports welcoming, open spaces that encourage inclusivity, access and diversity in their communities. This is achieved, not just through the environmental and physical aspects of accessibility or with the accessibility of collections, but also with social inclusion. What must be considered so that all citizens feel welcome in their local library?
