Highton Library, update.

We’re all invited to the reopening of the Highton Library, Monday 23rd December at 10am. PLEASE SHARE. The library has been refurbished and we’re all invited to the celebration. You may recall the fight to save Highton Library, which we posted about on May 7, 2017. https://humansingeelong.com/2017/05/07/save-our-library/

Three small libraries in our region were under threat of being closed; the Highton, Chilwell and Barwon Heads Libraries. It was the action of our community that saved these libraries. There were rallies, letters written, a media campaign and visits to Council meetings. The group voiced the need for these local services.

We love the quote “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” By Margaret Mead. This quote is also used by local action group Geelong Sustainability.

We hope to see you all there.
