Heritage Librarian Jane Harding accepts the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) Heritage Award from Jonathan Fisher, CEO, National Trust of Australia (Queensland).

Noosa Remembers: a history of the World War I memorials of Noosa Shire has won a Silver award in this year’s National Trust of Australia (Queensland) Heritage Awards.

Produced by Noosa Library Service, Noosa Remembers documents the history of Noosa’s World War I memorials and pays tribute to the community’s fundraising efforts to erect these cenotaphs, halls and other memorials.

It also looks at the roles the memorials have played in the community.

Council’s Libraries and Galleries Manager Kerri Contini acknowledged the work of Heritage Librarian Jane Harding, who co-authored the book with the help of heritage consultant Joe Hextall.

“Our incredibly dedicated and talented Heritage Librarian, Jane, has championed the recognition and celebration of the Noosa community's special stories and her work has been deservedly recognised with this award,” Ms Contini said.

Ms Harding accepted the award from Jonathan Fisher, CEO of National Trust of Australia (Queensland), at a ceremony at The Old Museum in Brisbane.

The judging panel described Noosa Remembers as an “impressive and important publication that has combined professional experience with voluntary input.

“Behind each of these memorials are stories of the community spirit, debate, fundraising and efforts that went into building them. This book tells those stories as it commemorates the Centenary of World War One,” the panel said.

The silver award was the highest awarded in the Interpretation and Promotion category.

Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington welcomed the announcement.
