What’s Been Happening at the Library

Summer reading, author talks, and library changes.

Through November and December our library service participated in the 16 Days in WA campaign to promote awareness of gender related violence in the community.

December also saw the launch of our Universe of Stories Summer Reading Challenge to encourage children to continue reading through the holidays. This year we had 63 participants who read more than 500 books over December and January.

In January we worked closely with ECC to make some significant changes to the library layout. This was for the mutual benefit of both organisations, allowing us to utilise our space more effectively.

In February we recommenced our regular programs such as Code Club and Tech Thursdays. We have also developed a monthly STEM workshop which saw 20 attendees at the first presentation.

We also welcomed author Steve Hawke who spoke before a crowd of 30 attendees. Steve reflected on his work and life as the son of an Australian Prime Minister, and read passages from his most recent novels.

The library will be making further changes over the coming months, including the addition of Digital Springboard workshops to assist customers in developing a professional profile online. Plus we will continue our Tech, Code Club, and Outreach programming.
