Making Connections: Indigenous Unit and Dhiiyaan visit to the Aboriginal Knowledge Centre, Katoomba Library

The Indigenous Unit visited the Katoomba Library on the 29 May 2014, with William Beale of the Dhiiyaan Centre in Moree, to learn about the Library and their engagement with the local Aboriginal community.

It was wonderful to see the Aboriginal Knowledge Centre being developed in the Library, and to discuss the ways in which our libraries can work together in the future. Thank you to Vicki Edmunds Manager, Libraries and Customer Services Blue Mountains City Council, for welcoming us and providing a tour of the Library.

The Library at Katoomba is a welcoming and open space that utilises local influences in the design of the building.
