Library Lines: Tuesday, 28 November, 2017

The library’s book sale will end on the 30 November, so come along if you want to collect some bargain books! There are some boxes under the sales table which you can fill with a variety of fiction, nonfiction, talking books, Large Print books, and children’s books. So come along and don’t miss out. Monies raised from the book sale go towards buying new stock for the library shelves!

As well as books, paperback, magazines, Large print books, talking books, DVDs and music CDs, the library also offers a range of other services.

There are three JPs on duty at the library most days of the week so people can have their documents certified and signatures verified. No appointment is necessary – just come along. This is also a free service.

There’s a copying machine that can photocopy documents, do printing from emails or the computers, and people can also scan documents from an USB to an email address or save them to a USB. There’s also a laminating machine capable of laminating to A3 size. These services attract a small fee.

Some library members might notice that the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue) with its services of renewing and requesting books online, isn’t working. IT are working on the problem and it will be functional again shortly. If you wish to renew or reserve items, please either phone 67402190 or email the library on and the staff will attend to your request.

Plenty of new books have been added to the collection this week, including Large Print books and Talking Books from the State Library in all genres – we will keep these items for three months before they are returned.

Other books include The 91-story treehouse by the popular children’s author Andy Griffiths, Teresa: a New Australian by Deborah Abela, a junior fiction book about ‘a young girl leaving Malta in 1949 to make a new life in Australia’, and Gluten-free pasta by Robin Asbell with ‘More than 100 fast and flavorful recipes with low-and No-Carb options’.

See you soon at the Library!
