The Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society Invite you to a Pop-up Museum…

Once Upon a Time: Stories of South Australian Childhoods

Friday, April 17, 2015
11 am -4 pm
History Centre, Coventry Library, Stirling

In association with the History SA, the Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society invite you to share your treasured memories, objects and photographs of childhood at our Pop-up Childhood Museum.

Whether a favourite teddy or children’s book, a photograph of you on your first bike, or a pair of baby booties, you will have a chance to display your objects and share your stories and memories at our Pop-up Museum. There will also be the opportunity for you to find out more information about your object and for it to be recorded to add to our collection.

The MLDHS encourage local people holding important and precious items, photographs, or documents relating to childhood to allow for these objects to be recorded through scanning and/or photographing so that they can be added to our collection to benefit local history and future study.

The event is open to all ages. We hope to see you there.

The Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society is based in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia. The Society provides access to a wealth of information about the history of the area through its Local and Garden History Centre in Stirling.

Uniquely, the History Centre brings together the history of local people and the remarkable gardens which influenced the development of this region.

It is located in the new Conventry Library, an award-winning building and the hub of the local community, attracting more than 2000 visitors a day.

The History Centre opened in 2008 thanks to the help of an Australian Government grant under the Regional Partnerships Program, the Adelaide Hills Council and several generous benefactors. It features a public display and research area, with freely available research materials, and a large functional workroom and store room which houses the Society’s collection.

Volunteers are available to assist people with inquiries between 2pm and 4 pm on days the Library is open. So come and visit us, and learn more about this fascinating corner of South Australia and its remarkable history.
