The City of South Perth Libraries are dedicated to supporting worthy causes as part of our Events Program. These events are opportunities for the community to donate to those less fortunate than themselves and build community spirit at the same time.

Give the Gift of Reading

When: Thursday 1 November to Saturday 1 December 2018
Who: Everyone who loves reading and kids.
