Hallowed Ground: Unexpected Libraries

An event in association with Art & About Sydney

Supported by the City of Sydney

Presented by City of Sydney Library and Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), Hallowed Ground returns in 2015 to discuss the unexpected and the improbable.

This free annual event sees a panel of experts discuss the ever-changing way we engage with libraries. Join them as they discuss how these most ancient of institutions, steeped in tradition and ritual, have emerged in the most exciting and unusual ways.

Past topics have covered the future of reading, the future of the storybook, and the future of the librarian (shhh!).

Panel includes:

Kathy Tritsaris (facilitator), Team Leader (Surry Hills Library)

Jaclyn Booton, General Manager (Wheeler Centre) @JaclynBooton

Mal Booth, University Librarian (UTS Library) @malbooth

Grace Turtle, Co Creator (Three Farm) @Threefarm3

Leigh Russell, Director (Hello Bookcase and Hello Library) @hellobookcase
