Want more? Libraries also host many exciting and interesting things for adults to do. Coming up next week at Wallsend District Library, you could meet crime writer Andrew Rule! Investigative journalist, co-editor of the Chopper series, and co-author of the Underbelly series, he has written, published, and edited over 30 true crime books.

Arts Minister Simon Crean launched the Public Library Membership Drive in May this year, stating that "Almost half of all Australians are members of public libraries, but there is still more work to be done to increase access and participation." If you aren't a member yet, or know someone who should be, get down to your local library and sign up. It's FREE!
