Celebrate Harmony Day - Thursday 25th March

Gymea Community Aid and Information Service
39 Gymea Bay Road, Gymea.
From 10am -12noon

Sutherland Shire Library is taking the ‘Living Library’ out to the community.
A Living Library works like any other library; you borrow, read and return books. The difference is that in this case, the ‘Books’ are people and so it is an interactive experience.

Harmony Day is a nationwide event that celebrates our many successes as a diverse and peace loving multicultural society. The aim is to address issues of cultural, racial and religious intolerance by promoting respect, fairness, inclusion and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Everyone Belongs is the theme for this year's event. Click here for videos from the Dept. of Immigration & Citizenship.

What better way to promote Harmony than learn about others. There is no easier way to do that than to 'Read' another's story. Celebrate Australia’s rich diversity and ‘read’ a Living Book. Borrow a ‘Book’ whose story is outside your normal comfort zone. Enjoy the chance to converse with someone from a very different background to yourself, whether it is racial, religious, or social. Our ‘Books’ are volunteers from the local community, and so are people you might walk past every day.

Please join us for the Living Library and other events at Gymea Community Aid & Information Service, 39 Gymea Bay Rd, Gymea.
