Flood victims can share stories

FLOOD-AFFECTED residents across south-east Queensland are being asked to tell their stories.

The State Library is calling for people to send in the photos they took during the floods for a mosaic at next year's Floodlines exhibition.

The exhibition is looking to form a "community memory" of the event with submissions of photos from affected communities.

While photos can be uploaded from home, libraries across the south-east, including in the Lockyer Valley and Somerset regions will be collecting photos.

Lockyer Valley mayor Steve Jones said it was an opportunity for people to show their story.

"This digital record provides a wonderful opportunity for Queenslanders to share their photos and memories with family and friends for many years to come, as a way of remembering, learning, understanding and healing," he said.

"I encourage people of all ages and backgrounds, community organisations and businesses to consider uploading up to five photos at www.mosaic.slq.qld.gov.au."

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said there would be a workshop held at Esk library on December 20 from 10am to noon and 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
