The Library, which has been run by volunteers for almost 30 years, collects and preserves material and promotes the awareness of the cultural heritage of Australian women.

Julia’s career highlights include addressing the United Nations General Assembly on gender equality; managing VIP transport services for the Sydney Olympics; and leading workplace relations negotiations and significant change management initiatives in many other government agencies.
The event commences at 11.00am and will finish with refreshments, the library ukulele group and an open forum discussion on working towards the creation of a women’s shed in Lithgow. Bookings are preferred for catering purposes and can be made by contacting Lithgow Library on 63529100.
