Boorongur Reading Nook
10am-5pm, Monday 4 July – Sunday 4 December 2022
Storybook Readings at 11am each day of the September/October school holidays
Curl up in the Boorongur Reading Nook with a picture book by First Nations authors/illustrators and share stories, conversations, feelings and ideas. Storytelling in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture takes place across multiple mediums and is way of passing on generational traditional knowledges, connecting with community, healing and expressing grief and sorrow, as well as sharing humour and resilience.
The Boorongur Reading Nook is being installed as contemplative reading space in celebration of NAIDOC Week and the incredible children’s storybooks that share creativity, culture, history and knowledges.
