Book about Aussie teen in Uganda to be discussed at library

A DISCUSSION on We are One Village by Nikki Lovell will be held at the Maryborough Library, in partnership with Rotary Club of Maryborough Sunrise, in March.

Councillor for community, family and cultural services George Seymour said regular book discussions were an important part of what made libraries such a vibrant community hub. 

"Libraries are more than just repositories for books, dvds, cds and audiobooks," he said.

"They are community spaces alive with activity for people of all ages."

The book discussion will be held at the library on Saturday, March 16, at 9:30am.

Interested readers can RSVP with the library on 4190 5788.

We are One Village is the extraordinary story of how an 18-year-old Australian girl set up a grassroots development organisation in Uganda.

March is Literacy Month for Rotary Clubs.
