Visit the Reid Library for summer reading inspiration with our two exhibition cabinets showcasing Australian 2018 Literary Award winning books and the 2018 Australian Book Design Awards (ABDA).

2018 Australian Book Design Awards (ABDA)
Who said you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? Not the Australian Book Design Association, and each year they identify the bravest and brightest, the most original and beautiful books published in Australia. Come and see the 2018 Australian Book Design Awards winners on display in the Reid Library display cabinet.
