Library Lines: Tuesday, 05 June 2018

Come along into the library and have a look at our new equipment!

Not only do we have a lot of brand new books available to read, but we also have new library trolleys, new display shelves, and also a new set of display cube - all the better to bring all those new books to your attention!


Now that the weather is a bit cooler budding handicraft people might consider patchwork and quilting. The library has purchased a set of new paperback books about quilting, with designs and directions for The Snail’s Trail Block, The Gentleman’s Fancy Block, The Farmer’s Daughter Block, The Sawtooth Star Block, and The Log Cabin Block being among them. The books have colour illustrations and diagrams to aid in completing the projects.

Struggling to find the time to read?

Not a problem – the library has plenty of talking books that you can borrow and listen to while travelling or working. Among the new titles are Magda Szubansky’s Reckoning, read by the author, described as ‘a brave and tender book about everything that matters most in life’; and also read by the author: The Barefoot Investor, described as being’ the only money guide you’ll ever need’; The Flight of the Falcon by Daphne du Maurier - which combines past and present in an enthralling tale.

If you’re not a member of the library, don’t worry – the registration procedure takes a minute or two, and all you’ll need is some form of ID, and you can start to check out items straight away – books, paperbacks, magazines, DVDs, CDs, Large print items, and talking books. Membership is free to residents, ratepayers and visitors, and there’s no age limit – a library is for everyone!

Remember: “Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.” ― Groucho Marx

See you soon at the library!
