Fridays at the Library

Click here to see the most up to date information about 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 contact Special Collections (phone 8201 5238) with your postal address, or subscribe to the email list. 

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.

Another popular regular event is History at the Movies, part of History SA’s About Time history festival, with historic 16mm film screenings on a chosen theme.

Fridays at the Library events are often presented in collaboration with other organisations, including History SA, Australian Book Review, the Flinders Music Advisory Committee, the Australian Institute of International Affairs.

Light refreshments are served, and all are welcome to attend.

No bookings are required and attendance is free of charge.
