The Jessie Street National Women’s Library presents a small exhibition to illustrate some of the many ways in which women have written about or acted as neighbours, ranging from simple over-the-fence support for each other to working on a national and international scale for the welfare of other women. This exhibition will utilise books, serials and posters from the Library’s collection.

The Ultimo Branch of the City of Sydney Public Library has an excellent collection of books in Chinese for the benefit of the neighbouring Chinese community who use the Centre extensively. Visitors are invited to inspect this collection and a handout will be available.

Where: Jessie Street National Women’s Library, Ultimo Community Centre, 523-525 Harris Street, Ultimo
