FOBL hosts regular speaker events with a wide range of renowned authors, journalists, actors, academics and local identities.
The funds raised are utilised both to enhance the library’s services and to enrich its book collection.

We gather in the Balmain Town Hall Small Meeting room. A light supper is served after each event and audience questions.
FOBL greatly appreciates the time generously given by our speakers to entertain and enlighten us as well as supporting our fund raising efforts.
