On Saturday the City Library’s yarn bombing workshop participants installed their knitted artworks along St George’s Terrace. We had chosen to liven-up the bike racks by wrapping them in brightly coloured knitted artworks. You can have a look at the amazing creations in the pictures below, or better yet, pop down to St Georges Terrace and see them all.
The decorated bike racks can be found between William St and Council House on both sides of the Terrace.
In late February to early March the Library will be installing 2 self check stations.
