IT’S time to go back to the decade when The Beatles were storming the charts, man landed on the moon and The Sound of Music had its record-breaking run at the Academy Awards.
It’s time to go back to the 1960s – the decade Thirroul Library first opened.
As part of Wollongong City Libraries’ ongoing Remember When celebrations, Thirroul District Library will mark the decade when the doors of the first library in the suburb were opened, with a themed Open Day on Wednesday September 16.
Another event, an 1980s themed celebration, is planned for Helensburgh Library on Wednesday September 23.
Activities on the day will run between 1-3pm and include a 1960s fashion parade, dancing demonstration, trivia quiz, and an afternoon tea. Those coming to the library are also encouraged to wear 60s fashion.
“Our Open Days have been a great success so far and a real celebration for our local communities,’’ library manager, Jenny Thompson said.
“I’m sure Thirroul’s Open Day will be no different. Each of these events acknowledges the contribution libraries make to our communities and help us reflect on how the services have changed over the years.
