Local history tell your tale

Shared Stories: Tell your Tale

Gympie Library - Thursday 4 May 10-11am

Uncover untold histories with us for the Australian Heritage Festival. Come and share a local story with us - from growing up locally or your family history...or are you new to Gympie region? Then tell us what brought you here or what you love.  Write a story about something relating to the Gympie region (5-10 mins) and come read it out (or we can read it out for you). Stories will also be shared on our local history blog "Gympie Regional Memories". Please submit stories to library@gympie.qld.gov.au by Friday 28 April.

Bookings are essential: phone 54810859 or visit here to book online
