During Heritage Week 2013, we have a program of events celebrating different aspects of our heritage. Join us for photograph restoration, a Public Record Office workshop on researching property, a look at the history of an ANZAC solider and learn more about the resources available for local and family history at Boroondara Libraries... but first, it is all about shoes!
Whilst we wait patiently to meet Ann Dixon of Bygone days and her amazing vintage shoe collection, get your shoe fix with the Berg Fashion Library. You can access this subscription only database from home, using your library card.
