Library Lines: Tuesday, 08 August, 2017

If you missed the Library tour that was held last Thursday during Local Government Week, don’t worry, just come into the Library any time and be welcomed by the friendly staff who will be happy to show you around and suggest the best ways for you to utilise your membership of this important community service.

Libraries are no longer just ‘book places but people spaces’ and Gunnedah Shire Library, although small, reflects this new attitude. As well as books, the Library also offers newspapers and magazines, paperbacks and large print items, DVDs and CDs, talking books in two formats - MP3 and disk, and an array of technical help.
Need a computer to polish your resume and send off a job application? Come to the Library and use one of the public access computers. Need some internet time to download a programme? Come to the library and ask for our free Wi-Fi. Want to copy, print, scan or laminate? The Library can help with all these things. Need to have a JP certify some documents? The Library has three JPs on duty.

If you would just like a space to spend some quality time chatting with like-minded people, making new friends, learning new skills, or networking, the Library is the place to be – join one of our programmes such as Toddler Time for the youngsters, or Brian Training at the Library for senior people. Find out more information about these programmes from our friendly Library staff.

New books have been added to the library this week. In keeping with the cool weather, check out Simply Heaven: Chocolate Volume 3, a book of chocolate-based recipes with beautiful photos. There’s also David Britton’s A French Inspired Café Cookbook and Daily Italian by Tobie Puttock, which also has personal reflections as well as tasty recipes.

See you soon at the Library!
