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 https://grenfellpubliclibrary.org.au/elibrary/

Please stop at the front entry and read the signs

It has now been 5 months of COVID-19 with the various lock down and restrictions in place by the Government but there are still numerous members of the community who refuse to follow Government directives. Please note that signing into the building upon entry is NOT optional. NO sign in, NO entry.

There have been many comments from the community that they didn’t see the signs, the hand sanitiser, and the iPad for sign in. Sorry but we do not understand how you can miss something in the entry way that was never there to begin with.
