Attention all library users!
The library is getting new carpet, and we will be closed from Monday December 9, and won't be opening again until January 6, 2020.
To tide you over this period, so you won't be running short of reading material during this period, we have increased the number of books that you are able to borrow, and have also extended the loan time until after January 6, so you won't be getting any overdue fines during the shutdown period.
There will also be several pop-up libraries scattered around the town - please don't leave your library books at these locations, but you can take any books from the boxes that you wish to read.
The pop-up libraries are located at the door of the conservatorium and also in the Civic foyer.
During the time of the carpet work, from December 9 until December 20, the after-hours chute to the left of the doors won't be available for use, but it will be back in operation from December 20 until January 6, so if you're in town, even though the library isn't open, you can pop your books down the chute and they will be returned by the library staff when the library reopens.
All library programs - Brain Training @ the Library, Junior Brain Games, Toddler Time, Bookends Literacy Assist will carry on as usual, but in a different location! Just come to the library as usual, and the library staff will escort you to the temporary location -
As usual, staff will be working behind the scenes to make sure the library will be sparkling on it's opening, with plenty of new books on the shelves.
Some new books added to the collection this week include the thriller Many Rivers to Cross, an Alan Banks crime novel by Peter Robinson. This author has been described as 'the master of police procedural ... The truth may be more complex - or much simpler - than it seems.'
Science fiction fans will enjoy After the flood by Kassandra Montag, it's 'a magnificent, exhilarating , action-packed, and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder.'
See you soon at the library!
