LIBRARY UPDATE
I know you are all enjoying our latest ‘Best Sellers’ as the books rapidly disappear from the shelves. Thank you so much for those thoughtful residents who buy one of the latest books published & then give it to the library for others to enjoy.
I am expecting some new large print books from overseas in the next couple of weeks, so watch out for them.
It was lovely to see some of your grandies using the children’s section of the library over the holidays. We would welcome any suitable books/DVDs for younger ages to boost what we have to offer.
Thanks everyone
Lois & The Library Team
