Lockdown New Books

Even though the library has been closed we've still managed to add plenty of books to the collection since March. We've kept putting monthly lists up on the website when we've been able to but to make things extra easy for you we've compiled a complete Lockdown New Books List so you can see all the new additions to the library in one handy location.

As usual all the titles are links to our catalogue so you can reserve them using your account, or if you would prefer you can call the library on 9650 3100 to reserve a title.
