We Are Georges River


Connect With Our Heritage & Culture

Georges River Libraries will be celebrating historical and contemporary stories of Georges River for NSW History Week 3 - 11 September.
To showcase the stories and significant timeline of our area, fun events and exhibitions will be based on this years’ theme Hands On History. Council events including walking tours, author talks, and workshops on how to research their family history and digitise old photo albums will be on offer. 

For more information about the upcoming events visit Council's What's On.

Travelling Exhibition

Council’s second inaugural We Are Georges River travelling outdoor exhibition will run from September to December. The 2022 exhibition themes River, Work, Play, Health and People provide a glimpse into the historic moments that define who we are today.
These iconic photographs from the Library Local Studies Collection will be on display at key local spots to show the ways we have worked, lived, and played over the decades. Community members can discover the stories behind the photographs by downloading the Connected to Culture app or viewing online.

Share your story

Help us tell the diverse story of our community by submitting a photo and short summary that shows your connection to the Georges River area. We are interested in old black and white photos from your family collection as well as images from the recent past and today as they all help us learn about our shared heritage. We would love to learn about:

  • Your family history
  • Raising a family or growing up in the area
  • Running a small business
  • Arriving here from overseas
  • Your experience during the COVID pandemic

If you would like to share your photo and your own unique story with our community, you can contribute to the We Are Georges River collection at any time - just get in touch with our library local studies team.
