Fridays at the Library

With the opening of exciting new Plaza and Hub spaces on campus in 2016 there was a revamping of the events presented by Flinders. As part of this process, Fridays at the Library no longer exists as a separate series and instead these sorts of events are presented as part of a broader program of Flinders’ events.

Thank you to our Fridays at the Library supporters.

  • Fridays at the Library

    The aim of the Friday series was 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, featured book launches, readings and presentations on various cultural, scientific, political, historical, legal and philosophical subjects.

    Most events took the form of a presentation by one speaker, but once or twice each year we devoted a whole afternoon to a theme, with readings, talks and often music as well. These included anniversary tributes to George Orwell, Rabindranath Tagore and Robert Burns, and literary/musical events such as Jane Austen’s Music and Bloomsday.
