Fridays at the Library
New events are held regularly in the Library during the university year. To be placed on the mailing list for Fridays at the Library, please subscribe to the email list or contact Special Collections (phone 8201 5238).
The aim of the Friday series is to present speakers on a wide range of topics of general interest to an audience drawn from the university and the community. The series, which began in October 2000, has featured book launches, readings and presentations on various cultural, scientific, political, historical, legal and philosophical subjects.
Most events take the form of a presentation by one speaker, but once or twice each year we devote a whole afternoon to a theme, with readings, talks and often music as well. These have included anniversary tributes to George Orwell, Rabindranath Tagore and Robert Burns, and literary/musical events such as Jane Austen’s Music and Bloomsday.
