Gawura Street Library

110 Parraweena Road, Miranda, NSW, 2228, Australia

Our library is designed to bring the community together, sharing their love of literature whilst experiencing Dharawal art by Deanna, our Aboriginal Elder.

The Gawura Street Library gets its name from the Dharawal word meaning ‘whale’, to represent us as the saltwater people. The artwork you will see displayed on our street library was created by Aunty Deanna, an Aboriginal Elder we are working closely with. This artwork tells the story of the Dharawal people as the saltwater people surrounded by the whale totem, fish and turtles in the bay. Aunty Deanna represented the community coming together in her painting, which is what we hope that this street library helps us to achieve further. The Gawura Street Library is a place where children and families can share books by borrowing and replacing to help share their love for literature.
