Cockburn Libraries is delighted to have been presented with a signed copy of Mr Michael Meerwald’s autobiography, A Rewarding Journey. He was encouraged by his family to write the book so that they and his descendants would have a record of the details of his most fascinating, eventful and sometimes challenging life.

Mr Meerwald lived in Cockburn for a substantial part of his life and was for eighteen years intimately involved in running Granary House in Coolbellup. He was City of Cockburn Citizen of the Year in 2000 for his service to the community and in 2002 received the Order of Australia Medal.
