Lithgow Library is continuing its tradition of providing quality information by highlighting some of the varied organisations in the Lithgow community. Lithgow Boomerang Bags, an organisation with an important environmental message, will be holding a workshop and launch in the Lithgow Library on Friday 8 June 2018.

Lithgow Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at the grassroots level. Dedicated local volunteers get together to make re-useable bags utilising recycled materials as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

Lithgow Boomerang Bags will be holding a launch and community workshop in the Lithgow Library on Friday 8 June 2018 from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome to come along throughout the day and learn more about this worthwhile project. Members of the group will be sewing bags throughout the day and there will be information videos on the project and the effects of plastic pollution.

“There are many organisations in the community who go about their business and find it hard to get the word out into the community about the work they do. This initiative by the Lithgow Library to highlight community organisations is an opportunity for others to discover what is available here.  I urge all community organisations to consider holding an information session at the Library,” said Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

For more information contact the Lithgow Library on 6352 9100.
