Hello Library – Sydney

Written by , Posted in Hello Library


We believe that to really get to know someone the best place to start is with the shelves of their bookcase.

The largest bookcase in any city is its library.

We will be visiting  selected City of Sydney libraries throughout February and March and chatting with the people who inhabit them.

Follow our conversations at Hello Library.

We have had an exciting year visiting amazing bookcases and meeting their owners – we will be sharing these with you in early 2015. (Our featured image is a sneak peek on our next bookcase)

We are also excited to announce that in 2015 Hello Bookcase will be introducing Hello Library. The Hello Bookcase team will be exploring  City of Sydney libraries and sharing with you our findings. The project will include interviews, a book and exhibitions.  Sign up to our mailing list to ensure you are the first in the know (look over to your left and you will find our sign up form).  We will also be providing updates on where you can find us if you would would like to participate at your local City of Sydney Library.

Happy New Year!
