The Reader returns
After ten years in storage, the sculpture The Reader by Bim Hilder is once more on public display.
The sculpture was originally located adjacent to the entrance of the Five Dock Library (now Five Dock Post Office) on Great North Road. Following the relocation of Five Dock Library to its present site, the sculpture was put into storage for safekeeping.
The Reader has been refurbished and positioned close to its original location, near Five Dock Post Office.
It’s appropriate in the week that marks the 75th anniversary of the NSW Library Act, providing free library services to the people of NSW, that The Reader returns.
