Mosman Library's Diamond Anniversary
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, today I acknowledge that Mosman Library will soon be celebrating its Diamond Anniversary. Mosman Library first opened in Belmont Road on 1 December 1945, and now records up to five thousand visits a week at its site in the Barry O'Keefe Library on Military Road. To celebrate 75 years, Mosman Library is inviting community members to get creative with numerous social media challenges, including a 'shelfie' competition, where readers are asked to showcase their shelf or to-be-read pile. We have provided funding to Mosman Library for their Library indoor garden and reading zone project which has greatly contributed to the library space for visitors to enjoy. Thank you to the outstanding staff at Mosman Library for continuing to provide our local community with a fantastic place to enjoy a good book or community event. I would like to acknowledge all the current Mosman Library staff including Donna Braye, Mary Lou Byrne, Darragh Christie, Madeleine Coulson, Gavin Fordyce, Sarah Kain, Stephanie Oppen-Riley, Merilyn Porter, Simin Reyhanian, Bernice Russell, Therese Scott, Shona Tait, Ashleigh Veitch, Grace Winzar, Grace Yoo, and Linda Horswell.
