NAIDOC WEEK 4 - 11 JULY, 2010
To celebrate NAIDOC Week Sutherland Library has selected books from the collection written by Aboriginal and Islander authors.

These books will be on display in Sutherland Library to make it easy for you to choose to read an Aboriginal author during NAIDOC WEEK.

Four DVDs have been added to our collection just in time for NAIDOC Week.
Indigenous Short Films from the Deadly Yarns series 1, 2, 3 and 4.
