"HI, Do you know where i can get a copy of Lily and Me by Moses Aaron. I am desperate to read this book again.
Thank you, Jessica"
I sure do, Jessica. I did a Book search on Trove and found that there are 40 copies of the work in libraries around Australia.
So what did I do? I went to the Trove website, trove.nla.gov.au, and selected Books from the search options.
I was taken to the page below:
I then entered my search term "lily and me moses aaron"
I was rewarded with some results. I clicked on the hyperlink to Lily and me.
I discovered there were two versions of the work, a book and an audio book. I clicked on the hyperlink to the book's entry that had told me there are 40 copies of the book in Australian libraries.
I was rewarded with a list of libraries that hold a copy of the work, Hopefully Jessica will be able to access a copy from one of the libraries listed.
Trove acts as a Union Catalogue for many Australian public and academic libraries. If you are seeking a particular title a Trove search may help you find it.
The mention of Moses Aaron brought back memories from my time as a Teacher Librarian, Moses was a storyteller who visited schools to entertain children with his tales. I remember a tall, gentle Jewish chap who wore Jesus sandals and captivated his young audiences with his stories. An internet search retrieved this page with Moses' story, it's a great story of an Australian immigrant. So there is a bit of a genealogical twist to this post.
