Celebrate NAIDOC Week with a story

NAIDOC Week celebrations are being held across the state from 4 to 11 July. This year’s theme is ‘Heal Country!’, and the Libraries Tasmania collections team has put together their recommendations for your reading list.

We have a range of titles for both adult readers and younger readers and they can be accessed as an eBook on Libby or OverDrive, or borrowed from one of our libraries across the state.
