Hello Moonee Valley Family & Local History Blog readers,
My name is Julia. Some of you may know me already, as I've been working here for over a year now as Information Services Librarian. I've recently been given responsibility for looking after the family and local history collections, which also means I'll be looking after this blog. I thought I should introduce myself, so, hello!
Some of you will also know my colleague Jennie, who has been looking after family and local history for the last few months, and you will no doubt be delighted to hear that Jennie will continue to provide family and local history training sessions, as well as continuing to help with inquiries and with blog posts.
I'm expecting the next few months to be exciting and busy for local and family history at Moonee Valley Libraries. We have several events and workshops coming up, (watch this blog for more details), and we have lots of plans and ideas for the family and local history area. I'll be posting regularly to keep you up to date with all the news...

On Friday the 28th June, 2013, Niddrie Library hosted the launch of Christine Laskowski's book Steele Creek and the Lady of the Lake: the early history of Niddrie, Airport West, Keilor East, Avondale Heights, Keilor Park, West Essendon and Tullamarine.
This book is the culmination of many years of painstaking research undertaken by Christine and is the first comprehensive history of the local area.
The library has several copies of this book available for loan and Reference copies will soon be available at the Sam Merrifield, Niddrie and Avondale Heights branches.
