Librarians George Yaroshevich and Helen Di Vincenzo at Earlwood Library, getting ready for the upcoming Greek book selection meeting.
CANTERBURY’S Greek community is invited to help library staff identify the best books, film, music and media from home, to add to our city’s stocks.
A Greek book selection meeting will be held at Earlwood Library on Monday, October 29, for Greek-speaking residents to make suggestions to council staff.
Canterbury Mayor Brian Robson said getting involved would help ensure new additions to the library’s collection were as relevant and interesting as possible.
There are around 13,500 people who speak Greek at home and about 5,700 people who were born in Greece living in Canterbury.
“This represents a significant part of our city and that’s why we’re proud to provide a range of educational resources and facilities which cater to the needs of the Greek community,” Cr Robson said.
The city’s libraries already offer a comprehensive collection of resources for Greek-speaking residents including 1400 books, music CDs, DVDs, videos, magazines and newspapers.
The meeting will be held between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
