We think our libraries do a wonderful job, but don’t take our word for it 🙂 We want your personal stories to share with other public libraries.

As part of the Public Library Strategy, Public Libraries WA is developing an annual publication to showcase the achievements of public libraries across WA.

Public libraries, every day, deliver activities, events, programs and services for countless people, whose heart-warming stories showcase the positive influence the library has on their lives.

Walking the Past: the Changing Face of Pilgrimage

Join us at the Margaret River Library for another fascinating walking through history talk by Dr Pam Lynch.

Please RSVP so that we can save you a seat to the ever popular history talk that combines Pam’s love of travel and all things history and archeology. In this presentation she will explore the nature of pilgrims and of pilgrimages – and if the purpose of these journeys today are what they were in the Middle Ages.

Morning tea will be provided after the talk which usually goes for the full hour. The library is an easily accessible venue and this event is FREE.
