Sunshine Coast locals can receive a special limited edition First Nations library card during National Reconciliation Week, May 27 – June 3.

The two available designs feature beautiful artworks by Kabi Kabi artists.

These offer a glimpse of the ancient knowledge and stories of our First Nations peoples.

New library members can choose between Kane Brunjes’s Guidance Through Country, which details the brown snake with line work influenced from the Bunya pine showing the strength and beauty in Country.

Or choose Amanda Pitt-Lythgoe’s Passing On Knowledge design representing the sharing of our stories to our future generations and the connection to spirit.

National Reconciliation Week is a time to learn about shared histories, cultures, and achievements. This year’s theme Be a Voice for Generations calls for all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in our everyday lives.

Visit Council’s Libraries website to learn more about First Nations storytelling, music and film items available to borrow or listen to. Discover events happening for National Reconciliation Week around the Sunshine Coast and explore a range of First Nations picture books for families to share.
