A chance to share your stories of Moonee Valley

As part of the upcoming Seniors' Month Festival we're hosting an event to collect stories and reminiscences about the local area.

Have you lived in Moonee Valley for a long time, or do you know someone who has? Do you remember milk being delivered by horse and cart in Essendon? Or have interesting reminiscences of your primary school in Niddrie? Was your street completely different, and maybe you have some photos you could share with us? Or perhaps you want to tell us about your Mum and Dad, and what life was like for them back when you were just a kid? Whatever your story, if you think it adds to a picture of the history of Moonee Valley we would love to hear it - and perhaps even record it to be added to our collection for use by researchers of the future. Bring along your stories, reminiscences, photos or souvenirs - and and appetite for afternoon tea.

Plus we'll have some interesting items from the library's Community Heritage collection to share with you too.

Moonee Valley Memories is happening on Wednesday 8 October, 2-4pm, at Sam Merrifield Library.

This event is free but bookings are necessary. Call 8325 1950 or book online.
