Logan Central Library
March is Health and Harmony Month at Logan Central Library, featuring free events for all ages. Have fun whilst learning practical and new skills focusing on physical, mental and financial health. Many of the events are hosted by local community and government organisations.
The highlight of the month: Celebrity Chef cooking demonstration – Alison Taafe and Danielle Dixon will cook up a storm in recognition of Harmony Day. This special event held in conjunction with Tasty Fresh Community Catering.
Full list of events and activities is available in the events calendar. Bookings essential for all events.
The Reading for Reconciliation Book Club is a free book club that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Logan Central Library.
This book club is committed to raising awareness of the shared history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The group does this by reading texts written by or which present the views of Indigenous Australians.
It is also an important way for people to learn about the oral history of the indigenous culture – whether indigenous or not.
