From fun arts and crafts for primary school kids to a fiesta celebrating post WWII immigration to the chance to bag bargain books, February is set to be a busy month at Liverpool’s local libraries.
“Our fantastic libraries have a number of interesting events planned for February, including arts and crafts for kids and the ever popular annual book sale,” said Liverpool City Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“It’s fantastic that the Liverpool Regional Museum will celebrate the contribution of European migrants following WWII to our nation at the Coming to Australia Fiesta – especially with food and dance – and that our Hindi community can have their say on what items they’d like to read and enjoy as part of the Library’s collection.”
Coming to Australia Fiesta: Saturday, February 7, 10am-2pm, Liverpool Regional Museum
The Coming to Australia Fiesta celebrates the contribution of post-WWII immigration to the nation. Featuring a focus on food, including Italian sauce-making demonstrations, wine and beer making lessons and sausage making classes, you can also learn the art of bocce or try your hand at Greek, Polish and Italian folk dancing.
