Library in Aranda

We visited Aranda’s place-of-the-moment, Two Before Ten, to see the library and games room.

It joins the other café library-ish spaces in Canberra like Bicicletta’s The Library Bar, and in the same area, Hotel Hotel Library and Hideout’s book wall.

…we know there are more, what have we missed? (O’Connor’s Free Little Library was recently taken so we’re not including it on the list).

Books! Games! Fireplace!

Two Before Ten’s Library is a relaxing, loungey space with some wonderfully retro artworks like a huge photo-print of the Carillon. Most of the couches were filled with people, and there was a group playing backgammon, so we took our photos “around” the crowds. As such, there is a better photo in their opening feature Canberra Times article.

We hope to have an event there in the future – it has a friendly atmosphere and is a clear choice for library-themed drinks.

Plus there was a puppy outside! He had a Swedish name which we can’t spell.

Rapunzel in Incite

It’s been 3 months since our Rapunzel play, and 2 months since our very own Rapunzel, Nicolette Suttor, shaved her hair to fundraise for the Leukaemia Foundation.

We’re excited to see that Nicolette’s charity work and the Rapunzel play were featured in ALIA’s magazine, Incite (volume 36 no 5, page 34).

Even though he isn’t our usual animal type of mascot (a rabbit), our beary friend quite enjoyed the article. Click the image below to read the article in full.

An update since the article is that Nicolette has now fundraised $9,739 to help people undergoing cancer treatment.

It’s not long till our next event, which will be a talk/workshop on taxation issues. We’ll release tickets very soon.
