Community members can test their knowledge of drugs and alcohol at the Drug and Alcohol Info Hub currently on display at the Cessnock City Library.  

The Drug and Alcohol Info Hub is an interactive travelling display program that provides up to date and accessible information about drugs and alcohol and identifies support networks and agencies within the local community.  

This is an initiative from Drug Info at the State Library of NSW and it aims to educate the community on the different types of legal and illicit drugs that are available. It also focuses on explaining the effect that they have on your body.   The interactive hub on display at the library provides access to quality drug and alcohol information for all members of the community.  

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent encouraged community members to check out the Info Hub.  

“This display is an opportunity for us to provide our community with the latest and most reliable information. It’s also a chance to raise awareness of the impact of alcohol and drugs on health and social well-being,” said Cr Pynsent.    

Drug Info is a partnership between the State Library of NSW and the NSW Ministry of Health.
