Library opening hours for Monday, 25 April 2016 will be:
10am to 6pm
Anzac Day, the 25th of April, is one of Australia's most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. Since 1915, the day has involved the entire nation in solemn ceremonies of remembrance and gratitude. 2016 marks the 101 anniversary of the Gallipoli landings.
At 11am on Monday the Library will commemorate with 1 minute of silence.
There will be sprigs of Rosemary available at the Library help desks.
Rosemary for remembrance
Since ancient times this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve the memory.
Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day, and are usually handed out by Legacy and the RSL. Rosemary has particular significance for Australians, as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula. - Australian War Memorial
