LIBRARY LINES for week beginning 23 March 2020

Grenfell Public Library Update

The library is open but if you are unwell please do not enter the building.

Expanded Housebound service

If you are unwell and live within the town limits, please contact the library and we can organise a delivery for you. This will mean you leave your returns in a bag on your front step and the library staff member will swap over the bag for a new one with stock. We will not knock on the door.

For those outside the town limits you can ring the library for stock to be put aside and have a friend or relative pick them up for you.


Activities such as Baby Bounce, Preschool Storytime, Cinema and School holiday activities are all on hold until further notice.

Online resources are available

As part of your membership you have free access to BorrowBox for eAudiobooks and eBooks. This gives you a limit of 4 titles of each eAudio and eBooks at one time. You will need your membership number and date of birth (ddmmyy) to log into the free app. There are titles for everyone.

Story Box is free as part of your membership as well. Story Box Library provides a vibrant, interactive experience via a diverse range of everyday storytellers – actors, comedians, sports people, musicians, artists, authors, children – with varying accents and from different cultures, each sharing past and present book titles. The result is meaningful, entertaining readings that focus on both teller and tale. This is a streaming service so there are no limits to the number of titles you can listen to. You will be asked for your membership number only. No password required.

For school projects you have access to several online resources including the State and National Libraries plus World Book Encyclopaedia via the Grenfell Library website. These are all free of charge and can be used from home.
