Thank you to all the children who took part in this year’s Family History Month colouring-in competition!
There were many beautiful entries and picking the winners was extremely challenging!
The winners are:
4-6 yrs old – Shoma T.
7-9 yrs old – Vibha B.
10-11 yrs old – Ava C.
Many thanks also to our community members who put on their detective caps and helped us identify some Forgotten Kwinanians in our library exhibition.
By helping us name the people in our archival photos you help us create a more vibrant, engaging collection for future generations to enjoy. If you missed visting the display, a gallery of the images can be browsed below.
