The Women’s Library Needs You

Namely, your annual membership fee for 2020-21!

As a not-for-profit, community-based organisation, we rely on membership fees to cover our operating costs. Annual membership covers 1 November – 31 October, and this year’s fees remain at $20 or $5 for individuals and $50 for groups. Membership fees were due on 1 November 2020, so if you have not renewed please do so as soon as possible. Fees can be paid via credit card, using Paypal, or by direct deposit.

Direct deposit details:  St George Bank | The Women’s Library | BSB 332-013 | Account no. 551 063 657 | Include your name and membership No.

The Women’s Library is an unfunded not-for-profit organisation. All staff are volunteers, and without them the library would not function.

At a time when hard-won rights are falling down all around us, women are confronting misogyny, rape culture, and sexism in public and private life, and there seem to be fewer and fewer spaces for us to meet, to connect, and to learn and value our shared story, spaces like The Women’s Library become increasingly precious.

We appeal to all those women out there who may not use us regularly but who like to know we are here, to the women who attend our groups and events, and the women who visit or drop in to read, relax, or chat. Show your support by becoming involved, joining our online activities, and keep the library alive.

While we have been closed for much of 2020, we are looking forward to a renewed presence in 2021. We encourage women’s groups, feminist groups, and women’s services to support us and become involved:

  • take out a group or agency membership which entitles you to use our space
  • visit the website often to hear about our activities
  • send us details of your events that we can include in our newsletter
  • connect on Facebook and Instagram.

Help ensure that The Women’s Library remains a welcoming space for our community and a place that continues to nurture women’s growth.

The Women’s Library gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of the City of Sydney Council.
