NAIDOC Week celebrations at Logan libraries

Logan City Council Libraries will celebrate NAIDOC Week with a children’s magic show, bush tucker talks and a women’s business workshop.

Celebrated Aboriginal chef Dale Chapman will take the community on a cultural journey inspired by her passion for bush tucker and her belief that traditional food is an effective weapon in the fight against heart disease and diabetes.

City Lifestyle and Community Committee Chairperson Councillor Steve Swenson said the libraries would mark the week with a full program starting this Saturday (June 30).

These sessions will be held from 10.30am to noon on Saturday (June 30) at Logan Central Library and from 2pm to 3.30pm, also on Saturday, at Logan West Library.

Cr Swenson said the Nana magic children’s show, featuring Browns Plains performer Uraine Roelof, would run during the school holidays.

“The show is a fun-filled children’s education show with stories, song and dance,” he said.

“It is sure to be a very popular holiday activity with local children.”

The show will be held at the following times:
* Beenleigh Library – 10am – July 2;
* Hyperdome Library – 11.30am – July 2;
* Logan Central Library – 10am – July 4 and;
* Logan North Library – 11.30am – July 4.

Cr Swenson said the community was invited to join these family events to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

“Children’s activities will also be provided and a Dreamtime yarning children’s session will also be held from 10.30am on Saturday (June 30) and also July 21 at Logan Central Library.”

Cr Swenson said there would also be a Deadly Business Women session held during the month.

“People will be able to join Amanda Hayman and Karen Seage as they share their business journey which has included producing work for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

“They will be appearing from 10.30am on July 21 at Logan Central Library.”
