Explore Australia’s memory of the First World War through the mementos kept by service personnel, political leaders, civilians and artists. Sourced entirely from the Library’s collections, this exhibition highlights the private experience of war. Among the many treasures on display are the original artworks of Norman Lindsay for some of his most famous propaganda posters and the handwritten notes of Billy Hughes from the Paris Peace Conference. The Library holds the papers of Australia’s key wartime leaders, including prime ministers Andrew Fisher and Billy Hughes, Governor-General Munro Ferguson and General John Monash. These are complemented by amazing collections of recruitment posters, war photography, maps, diaries, cartoons, magazines, histories, memoirs and ephemera. Keepsakes explores how very personal experiences of war become collective memory.

Revealing the Rothschild Prayer Book c. 1505–1510 from the Kerry Stokes Collection @ National Library of Australia
The Rothschild Prayer Book, an early sixteenth-century book of hours owned for many years by the famous Rothschild family, was produced during the last great flourishing of manuscript illumination. This Renaissance masterpiece includes paintings of unsurpassed beauty and refined execution by some of the most sought-after Flemish illuminators of the early sixteenth century, including Gerard Horenbout and Simon Bening. Among its highlights are splendid paintings of popular saints such as Mary Magdalen, shown with the vase of ointment with which tradition says she anointed Christ. With 67 full-page miniatures, the prayer book is decorated throughout with illusionistic borders strewn with flowers and insects and biblical and mythical characters. Background landscapes and interior settings are rich in realistic detail. Acquired for the Kerry Stokes Collection in January 2014, this superb example of Flemish book illumination will be on public display for the first time ever, in the Treasures Gallery. A selection of the National Library’s own medieval and Renaissance treasures will complement the Rothschild Prayer Book. The display takes visitors on a journey from illuminated manuscripts to a printed leaf from Gutenberg’s Bible, via a tenth-century music fragment and the important fourteenth-century Chertsey Cartulary from the Library’s Clifford Collection. The display also coincides with the success of a major fundraising appeal to digitise, conserve and research the Library’s early manuscript treasures. It is a not-to-be-missed experience for lovers of illuminated manuscripts and rare books.

Skate in the City @ Garema Place
This is the fifth consecutive year of Skate in the City, running (or should we say skating) from Friday June 26th to Sunday July 26th.
Canberra’s CBD will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland with the return of the Skate in the City ice-rink taking up residence in Garema Place as part of a dazzling winter celebration.
There will be seven sessions daily, with an extra (and themed) session on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
A DJ Dance Party session will be held every Friday night and professional performances by experienced skaters will be included in a matinee and night session on Saturdays. This month long event will once again feature events for the whole family including cultural days, dress up nights and a kids snow box.
It’s official. Winter is here! If you hadn’t already reached for the gloves and scarf this year, there will be plenty of opportunities ahead of you as we head into the cooler months. Sure, winter isn’t as much fun as summer, but every cloud has a silver lining... especially those filled with snow.
