Sydney’s Biggest Book Fair

Lifeline offers an important service to our community. In addition to our 131-114 crisis support telephone service, we provide a range of counselling services. To assist us in maintaining this work, we rely heavily on the income received from our book fairs which are run entirely by volunteers.

The sale will include over 90,000 second hand books including quality novels, literature, history, study aids and many other categories, all at very attractive prices. Even though the electronic age is upon us, books are still an important source of enjoyment and education.

Conversation with Tara Moss

On the evening of Tuesday 21 June, Hornsby Library will be hosting an in-conversation event with Tara Moss.

Tara will be discussing her new book Speaking Out: a 21st-Century Guide for Women and Girls.

The book offers advice on how to find your voice and to negotiate the online space. Men and women of all ages are welcome to attend, but we believe that this event could open up a valuable conversation between parents and their teenaged children.

An excerpt from the book is available on the publishers website.

Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased via the library website, or in person at any Hornsby Library branch.
