Saturday 8th October, 1:30pm – 3pm at the Margaret River Library
This talk was originally set for September 22 and due to Josh Byrne visiting Margaret River that night, we have rescheduled to Saturday October 8th, hoping to reach all keen gardeners. Come along for some Spring garden inspiration. All welcome!
We’ve changed the way we provide wifi to our library members. Now you can access the current password by scanning your membership card at any of the Smart Serves. Ask one of our friendly staff members to show you how.
There are no longer time limits on wifi use for our members, but our bandwidth is limited and excessively large downloads will slow down the service for everyone (including you!) – so please be moderate in your use.
Parents please note that our wifi password is now freely available to all library members, so if your child has a mobile device, parental guidance is recommended.
Nominations are open to join an exciting new initiative to form a Community Reference Group! An important part of this group will be to advise the Shire on the wider community needs. This comes at an important time as the cost of living goes up and Council fights to keep rates as low as feasibly possible.
The group will be closely involved in the Your Vision 2036 project, which will run over the next year to review the Shire’s 20 year vision.
Come to Augusta Library Thursday 8th September at 10.30am for a fun storytime session aimed at children aged 18 to 36 months. A small morning tea is included and children can enjoy stories, songs, rhymes and a little craft in the Augusta Library.
Children’s Book Week is held in August every year to celebrate Australian Children’s literature and during this week Children’s Book of the Year winners are also announced.
Come into the library to view the award winning books on display and place a hold on any titles you would like to borrow. The Children’s Book of the Year titles will be available for loan at the end of Children’s Book Week.
To celebrate Children’s Book Week, the Shire libraries are pleased to host author Raewyn Caisley at both our libraries on August 31st. Raewyn Caisley is the author of over 20 children’s books including titles from the much loved Aussie Nibble series, a sporting fiction series and books that capture childhood adventures set in the incredible Australian and New Zealand countryside. Raewyn will be speaking about her books and writing process, with classes from Montessori Primary, Margaret River Primary and Augusta Primary schools when they visit the shire libraries.
