Nyeumba-Meta is a space and collection at Logan Central Library that aims to increase respect for Australian First Nations People. Nyeumba-Meta was named in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents, to reflect the Yugambeh and Torres Strait languages. Nyeumba in Yugambeh language means "teaching or learning". Meta in Torres Strait language means "house".
The Nyeumba-Meta space includes a collection of books and artefacts, artwork and regular events.
The Nyeumba-Meta collection was donated to Logan City Council Libraries in 1998 when the Indigenous Education Unit based at Woodridge State School was closed. Aunty Eileen Williams of the Yugambeh people wished to ensure the collection remained available to the wider community of the City of Logan.
In 2012, a new donation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander items for children was given to the collection by The Salvation Army, Communities for Children, Logan.
The collection includes books, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles and artefacts. These can be used by educational institutions to inform students about Indigenous customs and history. You can also access our Digital Collections : Our Stories online.
