If you weren’t at the special Mascot Library open day last Saturday, October 23 then you really missed out on a great community celebration – and some special treats. To mark the reopening of the library after our extensive renovations – and an expansion – library staff hosted a day for just about everyone in the community. It was a great way to reintroduce the library in Hatfield Street, Mascot and the George Hanna Memorial Museum. By Monday everyone was still talking about the open day and the revamped library and museum.
Talking of the museum, the exhibition on Daceyville’s rich past is building in popularity and well worth a visit. As Australia’s first public housing scheme, Daceyville has a unique history and through the exhibition that history unfolds. What was a dust bowl, sand everywhere, was Sydney’s first planned urban area with generation after generation of proud residents. It is well worth a look when you check out our new community asset – the Mascot Library.
Here are some of the pictures of the great day.
