If you want to learn more about the 5000 poppies event come along to one of the special events, at either Sam Merrifield Library (Moonee Ponds) or Niddrie Library, at which one of the founders of the project, Lynn Berry, will talk about the project and demonstrate how to make a poppy. The workshop at Sam Merrifield is this Wednesday, 6 August, from 2pm, and the Niddrie workshop at 11am on Wednesday 13 August. The events are free but it is best to book call 8325 1950 for Sam Merrifield or 8325 1925 for Niddrie, or book online: http://www.eventbrite.com.au/o/moonee-valley-libraries-3088070228
We will also be hosting an event all about how the First World War affected our local area. I'll post more detail about that soon... but bookings are open (call 8325 1950 or book online: http://www.eventbrite.com.au/o/moonee-valley-libraries-3088070228).
