Do you enjoy eBooks or eAudio?

You have two options for borrowing eBooks or eAudio books. BorrowBox provides you access to the most popular local and international authors. Whereas indyreads™ provides access to a statewide collection of independent Australian and international titles, classic literature, and modern award-winning titles. Both services are free as part of your membership. Further information available at

New Facebook group: What are you reading?

2020 has changed the way we live our lives, but our love of reading and our communities is still going strong. I would love to learn about what you are reading, be it an old favourite, a new discovery, eBook, audiobook, whatever you have access to! Share your books in a post of your own, or comment on others.

There have been some great recommendations for authors and new titles. Why not join us?

New stock available

There is lots of new stock that has come available during lockdown and since reopening. So much so that there is an extra display for the Adult fiction and Large print titles as there is no room on the normal display shelves. The kid’s titles have had a huge boost with the school holidays approaching us again.

School holiday activities

School holidays are approaching us again from Monday 6 July. These holidays will be different in that there will not be any activities held within the library. I am preparing take home activities for the kids to keep them occupied so keep an eye for these from Tuesday 7 July. I look forward to seeing the results.


I have been asked recently when I am likely to reopen the cinema. With the way that we are progressing and hopefully with Southern Cross Cinema having a good month or two reopening I would like to see us get back underway in October if restrictions do not go backwards at any time. If there is a movie title or two that you would like to see shown here in Grenfell please let me know.
