Week 1 Week 2 Week 3

Whether you would like to choose and hold your own items from our library catalogue, or you would prefer our experienced library staff make selections for you, we can provide easy delivery of your items to your doorstep.

If you would like to be included in our delivery service, please fill out our registration form or contact us to talk to one of our friendly staff.

Eaton Community Library to Re-Open

We’re back! Shire of Dardanup would like to announce the reopening of Eaton Community Library from Monday 8 June.

That means you can now browse our collection at both our Eaton and Dardanup branch or use our computers for printing and copying.

The Eaton Community Library will be open from 8am-4pm weekdays with a closure from 12 noon to 1pm for cleaning. We are also open from and 9am – 12 noon Saturdays.

As always, staff and customer health and safety is our top priority so to ensure everyone is protected there are some strict new guidelines that have to be followed, including:

      • Customers will be required to sign in on a visitors register
      • Safe social distancing measures of 1.5m must be maintained.
      • Any items handled in the library must be returned to a returns trolley.
      • Public PCs must be booked before hand by contacting us.

Also, our new delivery service was such a success we are looking at plans for it to continue. We will have more details in the next few weeks so watch this space!

We’d like to thank everyone in the community for their patience and support and we look forward to seeing you back in the library!

Coding for kids after school – Register Now!

Code Club is back by popular demand!

We had so much fun last term and we can’t wait to get back into it again. Don’t miss out, register now!

What is Code Club?

Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led coding clubs with a mission to #getkidscoding! We are aiming to give every child the skill, confidence and opportunity to shape their world.
The program is aimed at kids aged 8 – 14 years of age who advance through a series of coding languages:
  1. Scratch – a simple block-coding program which allows users to build animations and games while learning the fundamentals of coding.
  2. HTML/CSS – allows users to develop their understanding while building web pages and online content from the ground up.
  3. Python – this highly versatile programming language allows users to use their understanding and creativity to build Apps and complete web sites.
  4. Blender – coders can build 3D animations and games, creating 3D characters and developing their own movies and stories.

Code Club is project based learning, aligned with the National Digital Technologies Curriculum and provides kids with the opportunity to collaborate, create, communicate and problem solve! We celebrate our errors and embrace them as a chance to learn.

Code Club is free to join and is supported by volunteers and library staff. 

We strongly encourage parents to come along and be a part of what their child is working on and achieving. Not only that, kids can log in from home and continue progressing through their lessons.

Being part of a Code Club means meeting like-minded people, making new friends and coding awesome things together!
