Interested in local history?

The Queensland Local Studies Group (QLSG) meets to share information on all aspects of local history, both old and new. The group acts as a medium in which to discuss matters relating to providing local studies services to members of the public.

Meetings are held several times a year and hosted by different public libraries on a volunteer basis. The host sets the agenda, which might include a tour of the library or nearby heritage location, guest speakers, white gloves experiences or collection show-and-tell, group discussion, or hands-on workshop.

Membership is free, and all Queensland public library staff are welcome to join.

Upcoming meetings:

Previous meeting agendas and minutes are available on the Public Libraries Connect website. You can also subscribe to the online discussion list via the localstudies page.
