World Wide Knit in Public Day

Calling all knitters, young and old! Join in at Joondalup Library for World Wide Knit in Public Day on Saturday 11 June at 1.00pm. Bring your current knitting project or start something new on the day.

The purpose of World Wide Knit in Public Day is to show that knitting is for all ages and that it’s a fun and enjoyable social activity, especially in a large group. Let’s join in the fun as events are held in different locations all over the world such as Germany, the United States, Sweden, South Africa, Poland, Norway, Ireland, France, Finland, England, China, and here in Australia.

World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 and takes place on the second Saturday of June each year. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Knit in Public Day is the largest knitter run event in the world.

Join a regular group

Joondalup Libraries host regular knitting and crochet groups that provide further opportunities to get together and socialise. Meet new people, create community craft projects, knit for charity or simply complete your own knitting work in the company of fellow knitters. All welcome. No bookings required. Find details of all sessions and more activities here.

Books by Design

Books by Design is a fresh approach aimed at offering customers a new and exciting way of selecting books of interest.

Our experienced and knowledgeable team at the City of Joondalup Libraries will design and curate topical and popular collections, presenting them in a convenient and attractive manner.

If you’re short on time, then browse the themed Book Bundles range for junior to adult readers.

Whether you choose to grab one of our Book Bundles and go, or take your time to browse our Curated Collections, we’ll have something of interest for young and old.

This new concept is now available at all City of Joondalup Libraries and is a fabulous way to discover something new and different on your reading journey.
