Have you received your new bin? Want to find out more about waste reduction and our new three bin service? We kick start this year’s Low Impact Living Program with a two-part information session hosted by Jackie Dickson – Shire of Augusta Margaret River Waste Education and Projects Officer and sustainability, waste reduction wizard Nirala Hunt. In part one of this session Jackie will talk us through how to navigate our three-bin service including what to put where and why and where our stuff goes once we pop it in the bin. In the second half of this session, Shopping for the Planet, Nirala will look at shopping choices and how we can make changes to our consumption patterns that have benefits not only for our hip pocket, but also assist us as a society to reduce the amount of waste we create. If this sounds like your cup of tea, we would love to see you there.
Alternatively, contact the library E: email@example.com or P: 9780 5600.
Due to schedule maintenance, some online services may be intermittently unavailable between 2pm – 6pm on Saturday and Sunday (15th & 16th June).

Join Rebecca Hannan as she talks candidly about a time in her life when she wasn’t taking care of herself. Everyone around Rebecca saw a successful professional woman doing it all, but the things in life that were most important to her were being dismissed. It cost her dearly in many areas of her life, she knew something had to change. So she created a challenge to pull herself out of her funk and into her flow. Rebecca has shared this challenge with many of her clients and now it’s time to share it with the world.
Thursday 30th May, 6 – 7:30pm. Light refreshments provided.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph: 9780 5600

Kanopy is a streaming service that offers library patrons free access to a wide variety of movies and documentaries.
Kanopy recently notified us of a security issue on the platform, after it became apparent that some user information was not properly secured on the Kanopy platform.
Kanopy has confirmed that no Western Australian users were affected by this issue.
Kanopy has also assured WA libraries that the security issue has been fixed, and that they are continuing investigations to ensure this does not happen again.
