I’m happy to report that far north Queensland is home to this state’s favourite librarian – Gordonvale Library’s Trish Richards.
Every year, the Australian Library and Information Association invites library users to nominate their favourite staff members, with an online public vote determining the top contenders. And Trish was voted Queensland’s favourite librarian.
Trish Richards has been with the Cairns Regional Council libraries for six years now and she says she loves the Gordonvale library – which plays an important role in this rural community on the southern outskirts of Cairns. Like libraries everywhere, this place is much more than a building full of books.
Listen to ABC Far North reporter Phil Staley visit the Gordonvale Library and meet Trish Richards.
