Library Lines

The Friends of Grenfell Library AGM was held on Tuesday October 24.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the outgoing executive committee for their tireless effort in supporting the Library.

I would like to take this moment to welcome the incoming executive committee and the members for 2017/18 and the upcoming events for 2018.

For those wishing to join FOGL our next meeting will be held in the Library on Tuesday February 27 at 2pm.

For those about to start harvest have you thought about dropping in and grabbing your talking books to listen to while driving.

There are a great number of titles and there are the MP3 versions as well. Plus, the eAudiobooks on BorrowBox.
