Past Jean Genies

Jean Genies Banner 2

A Gosford City Library Initative

Jean Genies operated successfully in NSW during 2008, 2009 and 2010. Participaing libraries have been hosting programs and displays developing an exciting range of youth activities. Libraries have provided photos of the jeans in iconic locations presenting a snapshop of their state.

Each year we have said goodbye to the jeans by launching the program with help from celebrity guest authors. Later in the year we celebrated with a welcome home party for decorated jeans.

Photos and information about the events can be found at the wikis:
