LIBRARY LINES for week beginning 7 September 2020

The second-hand book sale is now on

The second-hand book sale has returned. Please help support your local library in buying old library stock. All funds raised is spent on new stock for the library. Cash sales only. Please bring your own bags.

Collection Survey

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Collection Survey this past month. I will review the responses and respond to you all.

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).

Access is available using your library membership via
