October school holiday program
Beware... our October school holiday program is here. Free and fun activities for children of various ages. Do you dare join us for a Spooktacular Showdown with some scary stories, mysterious movies and creepy crafts? Witches, ghosts and monsters will all be lurking in the library... if you are sure you are brave enough then book your spot now at mwrclibrary.eventbrite.com.
Bounce around books and ideas with other readers at Book Bouncers, our monthly book group for young adults. All teens keen to talk books are welcome! Usually held the first Tuesday of the month (unless otherwise advised, e.g. moved due to school holidays) 3.45-4.45pm in the Library Youth Room. Come along to the next group session on 22 October to chat about The Happiness Quest by Richard Yaxley. If you haven't read it don't worry, come along anyway and join in on our next fabulous read.
The Burial Files
Thousands of people travel through Sydney's Central Station every day. But how many of them know what was there before?

The Burial Files peels back the layers of history to reveal the fascinating story of the 30,000 souls once buried in the sands of the Devonshire Street cemetery. Hear from historians, curators, archaeologists, forensic experts and railway enthusiasts. Available now on iTunes, Google Play and SoundCloud.
