Library Lines

Another year is coming to an end and at the Library it has been a busy year with Anne retiring and handing the reins over to myself.

So, from both of us I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the community of Grenfell for your ongoing support and look forward to 2018 and the amazing events that are planned for you all.

A reminder that the Library will be closed from midday on Saturday December 23 until 10.30 am Tuesday January 2.

So please come on down and ensure that you have your reading materials and DVDs for the week.

All due dates will skip across this week so don’t worry about having to return them.

Remember that the after-hours chute will be available at the front of the building if you need to return them.

If you will be away longer than the usual three weeks over the summer, please let me know and I can adjust your loan period upfront.

This week’s new magazine titles include Australian Country Style, R.M. Williams Outback and Quarterly Essay as well as Marie Claire, Backyard, Australian Patchwork and Quilting and Australian House and Garden.
