Congratulations to everyone working in the Library industry.
This week is your week to shine.
Did you know there were almost 35 million visits to NSW public libraries in 2012 and almost 48 million loans?
And 52,000 public programs and events were held across the state.

There will be many fantastic events held this week to showcase and celebrate the resources, facilities, programs and events provided by libraries for the communitites they serve. Events include National Technician's Day, National Simultaneous Storytime and Australia's biggest morning tea.
