Lismore Library wins award for light-hearted efforts
Lismore Library has won a NSW Public Library Association Award for its involvement and efforts to enhance and promote the Lismore Lantern Parade.
Lismore Library won the ‘Innovation in Outreach Services’ award for areas with a population of 30,000 to 100,000 people for its support of the Lismore Lantern Parade and its prominent ‘stained glass window’ displays.
Library staff worked hard to make each of the library’s windows light up like stained glass windows to celebrate the parade, a project which took the staff many hours of planning and painstaking work.
“This is an absolutely fantastic effort and big congratulations goes to Librarian Lucy Kinsley and all of the Lismore Library staff,” Richmond Tweed Regional Library Manager Jo Carmody said.
“The staff at Lismore know the building holds a prime position within the Lismore Quadrangle and they are always striving to create engaging and interactive displays and projects that inspire people and complement our signature local events such as the Lismore Lantern Parade.”
NSW Public Library Association Awards recognise the diversity and high quality of outreach services provided by public libraries throughout the state and celebrates innovation to provide services that meet the diverse needs of communities.
