Babinda library was named Runner-Up in the 2013 Babinda Harvest Festival "That's Gold" Best Decorated Premises competition.
The Library was decorated around the theme "Reading – That's Gold" and featured displays of Little Golden Books - "a golden start to reading" and "golden memories of childhood". A collection of historical photos - titled "Golden memories of Babinda" - were displayed on the Library's new Touchscreen.
The gold-themed displays had many visitors reminiscing about their childhood and their favourite Golden Books! Babinda Library supervisor Holly Goriss accepted the prize on behalf of Cairns Libraries.
