Anzac Day

1000 Poppies, Kelvin Grove Library.

1000 Poppies, Kelvin Grove Library.

 

The 25th April is the anniversary of ANZAC troops landing on the beaches of Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women who have served and continue to serve in our armed forces.

Kelvin Grove Library has made a stunning display on Level 3 near the Library Helpdesk featuring a flood of poppies hand-sewn by librarians and friends from the community. The books on display are available for loan and will be replenished each day.

If you would like to know more about Anzac Day, why not visit the Australian War Memorial website or watch a documentary on one of our online streaming services?

Law Faculty Wellness Event

Part of being a good student is knowing when to take some time out for yourself to reconnect and clear your mind. QUT Law Faculty are helping Justice and Law students to do just that on Thursday 21st April as part of their wellness activities and the ‘I belong in the LLB Program‘.

If you have some free time between 10:00am and 3:00pm, come to the Law Library, C Block, Gardens Point and take part in the festivities. There will be fairy floss, colouring in, 90’s nostalgia TV screenings, and alpacas (on the lumpy lawn near Subway, not in the library!). For more information check out the What’s Happening Guide (307.30KB, pdf) and plan your day accordingly.

Make sure to follow @qutlibrary and @qutlaw on Twitter for updates and pictures throughout the day.

Play games for free in the library Games Lab!
