Bruce Miller Named Cowra Library Ambassador

By May 13, 2009No Comments

Councillor Bruce Miller, of Cowra Shire Council, is Cowra's Library Ambassador and one of the first two recruits to the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) National Library Ambassador campaign, which is similar in concept to UNESCO's goodwill ambassadors. By seeking out high profile champions for the role of libraries in the community, ALIA aims to influence public opinion about this vital service and keep libraries at the forefront of discussions about community, resources, education, services and funding. Councillor Miller has served on the Cowra Shire Council for nearly 20 years, 14 of them as mayor, is also the president of the Shires Association of New South Wales. He is a keen advocate of libraries stating “they are places that are full of exciting ideas.” His first library event will be on Wednesday 27 May, at 11am, when he will read Pete The Sheep, by Jackie French and Bruce Whately, as part of ALIA's National Simultaneous Storytime.
