Memento : Issue 31
Five-year-old Zoe Webster had her face painted at the fifth annual Grandkids Day. Despite the wet weather, over 1000 people visited our Parkes building in Canberra, where other activities included kite- making workshops, concerts by Mike Jackson, and story telling. We had some vintage visitors recently – members of the Southern Tablelands Heritage Automotive Restorers Club and their cars. The club’s vehicles range from trucks to motorcycles to military vehicles and sports cars. The group viewed motoring manuals and magazines from our copyright collection. Steven Jacobs, from Channel 9’s Today show, presented the nation’s weather from our Parkes building on 17 January 2006. He showed viewers a glimpse of our Summers Past exhibition, Australia’s ‘birth certificates’ from our Federation Gallery, and immigration records of host Karl Stefanovic’s family. Director-General Ross Gibbs (centre) and Strategic Relations Director Adrian Cunningham (fourth from left) met with a delegation from the National Library and Archives of Bhutan. The delegation, led by Archivist Mr Kunzang Delek (third from left), visited the Archives to find out more about our preservation operations and building management systems.
