Pop-up library

What bird is that? What flower is that? What mossy thing is that? These are just some of the books you’ll find at the pop-up library to help you discover more about Australia’s amazing fauna and flora.

Did you know that the Australian National Botanic Gardens has a library? The Library provides services to staff and volunteers and library resources are available to members of the public (by appointment only) between 9.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. The Gardens’ Librarian and Archivist, Jane, will bring a selection of books to the pop-up library during the Bush Blitz event.

Examples of early plant labels from the ANBG Archive. Originally made from Tasmanian Huon Pine, today’s aluminium signs are much more durable.
