  • Namatjira Project

NAIDOC Week (July 7-14) celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories.
One way to do this is to jump onto our library's free streaming service, Kanopy, and watch a film or documentary. Kanopy has curated a watch list with hundreds of titles about First Nations people in Australia. We have highlighted some of these here to help you choose.

#FlashbackFriday ⏳ This might look like a scene from Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets (whomping willow, anyone?) but no - it's an unfortunate scene in the Moonee Ponds Creek in 1979. 🚘🌳

#FlashbackFriday ⏳ The grand opening of the Puckle Street branch of T. B. Scott, a grocery chain, in 1932. 🏪 This premises fared better than its Fairfield counterpart, which was attacked by arsonists that same year - thieves threw gasoline on a side of bacon and set it alight. 🥓🔥 Although, the Puckle Street store did get in trouble the following year  for over-weighing vegetables... 🥕⚖
