Action packed Historical Thrillers

If you are a fan of action-thriller authors like Preston & Child, Matthew Reilly, Dan Brown or Andy McDermott, you might enjoy the books by Steve Berry.

Berry’s historical thrillers mix facts, theories, conspiracies and a lot of action.

His main character, Cotton Malone, appears in many of his novels, and as they stand alone, you can read them in any order.

You can also find some of his books in Audio Format on CloudLibrary

Well done to all our community for complying with the temporary lockdown and ensuring we could all get back to our current version of ‘normal’ 🙂

Please look out for any changes issued by the WA Government at  https://www.wa.gov.au/ as this may result in further changes to Shire facilities opening hours and services.

Update on library services during Covid lockdown

Library staff have been busily investigating how we can best serve our community during this trying time. We’ve been through lockdown before, but this time the rules imposed by the State Government are a little different.

This is what you need to know (and please spread the word!):

  • Libraries are not permitted to offer Click & Collect during the current lockdown, but don’t worry – we’ll be holding on to your reserved items for an extra few weeks to make sure that you don’t miss out! As soon as pick-ups are permitted again, we’ll let you know.
  • We’re also required to close our After Hours Book Return chute, so please hang on to your items for now. We don’t mind if they are overdue – you won’t be penalised for that. We are in the process of organising the renewal of all current loans, so don’t be surprised if your due-back date suddenly changes.
  • Online resources are available so that you can still enjoy a fresh supply of books, magazines and movies. Click here to explore the range.

As always, we are here to help and support our community. If you have any concerns about your membership, or need guidance on how to access e-resources, please contact us at amrlibrary@amrshire.wa.gov.au   Please note: Our staff are currently working from home, so please email us rather than phone the libraries.

Stay home, stay safe and be kind to each other! We look forward to seeing you all again on the other side.
