Library collection survey

To make sure that the library is providing the right type of materials for the Weddin Shire, we ask that everyone fills in the collection survey via this will only take a couple of minutes to fill in. Thank you for your help.

Library hours are back to normal and the second-hand book sale has returned

From Tuesday 4 August, the library has returned to normal hours. Please note that this does not change any of the other restrictions due to the increase of cases across the state and more travellers in the area. The remaining sections will be released when we feel it is safe to do so.

With the return of normal opening hours, the second-hand book sale has returned as well. Please help support your local library in buying old library stock. Cash sales only. Please bring your own bags.

Storytime will not be returning for a while, but you have free access to Story Box

Use it as a bedtime tale, a facilitator for discussion in the classroom, a complement to library Storytime, or a read aloud model – the choice is yours. No matter what the reason for your visit to Story Box Library, we help children journey to that most uniquely precious place, the wilds of their own imagination.

Our stories have been selected with children of pre-school and primary age in mind. Stories have been broken down into the following categories: Pre-school (3 – 5 years); Lower Primary (5 – 7 years); Middle Primary (8 – 10 years) and Upper Primary (10 – 12 years).
