Bujari gamarruwa means ‘good day’ in the Gadigal language. The City acknowledges the Gadigal or the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of this place we now call Sydney. Did you know the word Koori comes from the Awabakal language and refers to Aboriginal people from either New South Wales or Victoria?

This is just one of the interesting facts you can learn from the City’s Koori collection at Waterloo and Glebe Libraries.The collection includes around 2,000 books, DVDs, CDs and newspapers celebrating the living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. From bush medicine, bush tucker, astronomy, philosophy and Indigenous languages, there’s something for everyone of any age or interest.

You can visit Waterloo and Glebe Libraries to check out the collection, or search the collection online at the new look library catalogue. If you’re a library member, any item can also be sent to the Library Express at Town Hall House for you to pick up.
