Did you know that under previous Australian law, unpublished materials, including letters, diaries and shipping manifests, remained in copyright in perpetuity?
This meant they were locked behind laws requiring you to seek permission from an often impossible to identify copyright owner before you could publish, adapt or even copy them.
Due to recent changes to that law, millions of items from our national collections – from Captain Cook’s carrot marmalade recipe and Henry Lawson’s letters to war posters – are now free to use.
To celebrate, Australia’s libraries and archives are declaring 2019 the Year of the Public Domain.

On Tuesday night, over 10 teddy bears stayed at the Margaret River Library after their picnic. The teddys had a lot of fun during the night at the library and children were given books containing photos of last night’s events.
We thought you might like a sneak peak of some of what went on….
Happy School holidays and we hope to see you at the library soon.
