Memorial for a librarian



A FORMER Tweed Shire Councillor's passion for books was honoured over the weekend when the Tweed Heads Library was renamed the Bruce Graham Library.

A councillor for eight years from 1991, Mr Graham died in September this year. He had a long association with the Richmond Tweed Regional Library.

His passion for literature was lifelong, carrying through to his career as librarian at Tweed River High School. He went on to write two books on the Tweed and was writing a third.

Mayor Warren Polglase renamed the library in honour of Mr Graham on Saturday, urging people to remember his contribution to the arts.

Good friend Max Boyd said Mr Graham always saw books as a medium for learning.

"His name deserves to be perpetuated. In my view he would have to be one of the most outstanding councillors out of the 60 odd I have worked with," he said.
