Bring your old showerhead to the library and a water bill if you have one, register your details, read the terms and conditions and take your new showerhead home. The program continues until May 2020 or while stocks last.
When you next visit the library take a few minutes to look at our New Books Display. You might come across something you’ve been looking for, or a book you did not even know you wanted.
If you are a fiction reader, some of the current highlights include: “A boy and his dog at the end of the world” by C. A. Fletcher. With well thought lines, Fletcher evokes a world where not many of us are left. A phenomenally crafted tale of survival, kindness and a very empty planet.
“The beekeeper of Aleppo” by Christy Lefteri, is not the story of one single refugee, but many stories blended into one to draw a deep picture of the real struggles lived by those who try to escape a war torn country in order to survive. At times heart breaking and others heart-warming, this a tale of contemporary significance.
You will also find new books by Ben Elton, Chloe Benjamin and Sally Rooney.
Take a journey with “Great Western Railway Gallery” book, get adventurous but not too reckless in the kitchen with “Healthy Greek Cooking”, or toss the diet out the window with Pamela Clark’s” Cake & Co”.
Penny Olsen and Lynette Russell shed a light on the importance indigenous Australians had in helping European settlers find and catalogue our unique fauna in “Australia’s first naturalists”.
This New Books edition is an eclectic sample of our collection, and we hope you find something special for you. Just remember to place a hold on the item you would like to read, or ask one of our staff if you need help.
