FINALIST: Jane Harding, Heritage Librarian, Noosa Library Services, Noosa
As the Council’s Heritage Librarian, and recently promoted to Heritage Coordinator, Jane works tirelessly to increase and share the knowledge and understanding of local heritage throughout the Noosa Shire. She is instrumental in ensuring that this young community’s history is appreciated and captured for future generations.
Jane’s role is multifaceted and involves juggling multiple projects at any given time. Notable outcomes delivered in the past year include the conception and coordination of an exhibition in partnership with local curator, John Waldron, to celebrate the last 50 years of the Noosa Shire, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast. Titled What’s Up Sunshine? the exhibition was a tremendous success with locals and visitors to the region.
