Kathleen Syme Library Opening

The City of Melbourne are inviting everyone down to the opening of the newly renovated Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre on Saturday July 4th! There'll be free community activities, giveaways and demonstrations taking place all day and we're especially pleased to be providing Roll Up Bicycle Valet Parking for those who choose to pop down on their bikes. 

Like any good Carlton establishment, there'll be great (and free) coffee. You can also try 3D printing, be a part of story-time and give your vocal chords a workout in the recording studio.

While there, explore the $15.5 million transformation of this historic building into Carlton’s first community hub. You won’t be shushed in this library – the spaces are designed to get conversations going!

Some of the highlights of the day include:

10am–3pm: Roll Up Bicycle Valet Parking

10am: Chinese lion dance

10am, 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm: The Peanuts 

11.30am, 1.30pm: Open Door Singers Docklands

10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm: Cooking demonstrations

10am–3pm: Community group displays

10am–3pm: Awakening Lines, a Co-creative Installation

Every hour from 10.30am to 3.30pm:
Storytime Tasters
Calligraphy Drop In 
Exotic Sounds Public Expression Sessions
Make a Zine  plus much much more! 

It sounds like its going to be a vibrant addition to the local community so make sure you get down there to check it out and even better, make it a bike trip! You can find out more about the Opening Day here.
