Pinesong Residents' Library

LOCATION: The Pinesong Library is situated at one end of the Bayview Lounge on the first floor of Bayview.
HOURS: Open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
LIBRARIANS: The Pinesong Library is run by a team of 9 volunteer residents. The Head Librarian is Lois Lilly assisted by Noel & Gillian Clark, Ron & Jocelyn Cartwright, Jean Piper, Margaret Parkinson, Arthur Hammond & Mary Nicholson. Lois is in the library from 9 to 3 each Tuesday, with other librarians in attendance for part of each day.


FICTION BOOKS: A large selection of fiction books are arranged on the shelves in alphabetical order and a special section is allotted to Large Print books.
NON FICTION BOOKS: There is a selection of non fiction books on various subjects plus a large number of biographies & autobiographies.
BEST SELLERS: A selection of current 'Best Sellers' are available approximately 3 times a year. There is a $2 charge which allows for the further purchase of up to date books as funds become available.
DVD's:  There is a good selection available, these should be returned within a week.
MAGAZINES: These are available for browsing in the library or taken home & returned.
REFERENCE BOOKS: We do not keep a large number but some very good ones for solving crossword puzzles! The Postal Code Book is available on the Issue Desk.
BOOK/DVD ISSUE SHEET: All books & DVD's should be entered on the Issue Sheet before leaving the library. Please note that the code is on the back of the book/DVD. Books are issued for 5 weeks & a reminder is sent after this time unless an extension has been requested. We request residents to return 'Best Sellers' within 2 weeks to allow wider circulation.
BOOK RETURN: Books/DVD's can be returned to the library box or the designated box beside reception in the front foyer.
RESERVATION: Reservation Forms are on the Issue Desk. A librarian will pHone when the book becomes available.
I have just catalogued more DVD’s that have been donated, they are on the carousel nearest to the outside door. Some old, some new!
There will be a delay for some on “The Sun Sister”, it is very popular & we already have 9 reservations. There are plenty of other great books - I find I often alternate between something light & something more ‘meaty.’ Other times I fixate on an author. ( I have just finished the Jeffrey Archer series The Clifton Chronicles).
I have also read Jojo Moyes latest book “The Giver of Stars” Took me a while to get into it but it is quite a delight. Mind you it is about books & librarians!
Hi All There was a large number this week, may be because of the computer glitch a couple of weeks back. Please check carefully. Thanks.
Lois & The Library Team
