Georges River Libraries is celebrating the cultural diversity of the Georges River area and beyond with a number of free Harmony Day themed events at our libraries.

Harmony Day aims to encourage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone. It is held every year on March 21.

Kogarah Library will host a Henna art workshop on Tuesday 21 March with Gul Mehndi. Participants will learn about the history of henna, the various styles of henna, how to hold a henna cone and basic drawing techniques. Workshop for ages 18 and up. Book here.
