About this event

What's on Level 3 of the Mortlock Wing?

Friday 29th October 2021, 10.30am to 12.30pm.

In this two hour session participants will have the rare opportunity to spend time perusing the books held by the RGS on Level 3. You are then invited to share what you have found with the other participants.

Many of the books have not been catalogued and are waiting for someone to discover them, pluck them from obscurity and (possibly) have them included in the Society's catalogue.

The library of the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia holds an extensive collection of books and other items. The Rare Book meetings provide an opportunity to uncover items of significance that are "hiding" in the shelves.

Please note that a booking must be made to attend the meeting.

Meetings are held in the Jervois Room, Mortlock Wing, State Library of South Australia. The Jervois Room is at the southern end of the Mortlock Wing on the ground floor.

Cost: free to RGSSA members, but you must register with Eventbrite. Non-members are welcome to attend at a cost of $10 per person per session.

The State Library advises that standard COVID precautions will be in place including the wearing of masks. No one should attend if they are feeling unwell. COVID QR check in and social distancing to be adhered to as well as frequent use of hand sanitisers.

Any questions, please contact Convenor Jill Kerby on mijikerby@internode.on.net
