White Ribbon Day 23rd November 2018

The White Ribbon campaign is active in over 60 nations across the world and is a global movement working to end male violence against women and girls. The movement seeks to promote healthy relationships, gender equity and a compassionate vision of masculinity.

Please support this day by thinking of the 58 women who have been killed by men in acts of violence in Australia since 1st January 2018 and also wearing a White Ribbon on November 23rd.

Last week Hamilton Library, in conjunction with Cert IV Youth work students hosted a morning tea in support of White Ribbon day. More than 60 staff and students enjoyed lovely treats while listening to Brooke from VOCAL speak of the effects of domestic violence on the women in our community.


Libraries at a glance

Have you ever wondered what library staff do in between helping you?

This is a snapshot of the services, resources and facilities we provided in a year to Hunter & Central Coast students and staff, not including all of the events we host! Did you know that we often trial and select new online resources (not just what’s on the shelf), maintain the website, and our subject librarians create your LibGuides?
