Greater Hume Council Libraries Social Media Pages

Greater Hume Council Facebook pages not only keeps you up to date with what’s happening at the library but provides some great entertainment. Our latest venture is focused around the school holidays and beyond. So with the kids in mind, we have teamed up with Australia’s most loved audio book narrator for young adults, Stig Wemyss. A few years ago Stig was our guest entertainer during Book Week and the kids LOVED him. Stig has created some stand up comedy videos with themes such as Parents, School, Pets. We have the licence to his first one, titled Siblings.

Guaranteed to be FUNNY. Stig performs his stand up comedy at The Rubber Chicken, Melbourne’s comedy hub. We have the licence for two weeks. Find Stig's stand up comedy amongst our videos.

Go to any of Greater Hume Council Library platforms check out Stig’s performance and let us know if you’d like to watch another Stig stand up comedy!

Representations of a Communities Soul 

The Greater Hume Libraries were successful in receiving a Country Arts Support Grant for this amazing community project. They worked alongside the Local Art Groups to help build community spirit through art and creativity by creating portraits of important community members in a series of workshops led by a local artist. The finished portraits are now to be unveiled online through our social media and websites as COVID- restrictions are limiting numbers of people in the Libraries. The portraits are to be held in the Henty Library, where they are displayed on the cultural wall for the foreseeable future.

To see each of the portraits and their explanations please click on the relevant person's link below.
