Time to share the love at our libraries

This year Sunshine Coast Libraries wants its members to ‘share the love’ by enjoying a variety of love-themed events and activities.

From February 12-18, visit any library or mobile library to pick up heart candy and attach love-notes to your favourite books. Or grab a ticket to one, or both, special Library Lovers’ events - Library Song Choir and Meet Rachael Johns.

Not a member yet? Sunshine Coast Library memberships are free and open to anyone. Visit library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/visit/join-the-library to join today.

Library Lovers’ Day is all about celebrating libraries and the valuable role they play in the community. This year’s theme ‘share the love’ encourages members to share their love of libraries and books with the community.

Get involved with Library Lovers’ Day:

Library Song Choir - February 14-15

Experience the joy of social singing with Jen Young from the Sunshine Coast Show Choir. Libraries invite members to master the tune, learn the words and harmonise in a love-themed group sing-along. No singing experience is needed and everyone is encouraged to come along!   

Events are being held at Maroochydore Library on Wednesday, February 14, from 10am to 11.30am and Caloundra Library on Thursday, February 15, from 10am to 11.30am.

The events are $5 per person and include morning tea. Registration is essential via the Library website.
