Our collection

This is just one of the interesting facts you can learn from the Koori collection located at Waterloo and Glebe libraries.

The Koori collection was made possible with a grant from The State Library of NSW.

The collection reflects the voice and perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and has grown to over 2,000 items.

It comprises books, DVDs, CDs and newspapers all celebrating the living cultures of First Nation Peoples.
