The library will close at 4pm on Friday December 13 for renovations over the holiday period.
The Library is expected to re-open from 20/01/20. Members will be given a progress update in early January.

Book and Screen Clubs

The library offers a wide range of book clubs to suit diverse reading tastes. These clubs meet monthly and members decide on which books are read during the year.

The clubs provide a casual but structured discussion led by an experienced reader with questions and discussion points developed to assist and enrich your thinking about the author and the book.

Membership to any of the book clubs or screen club is free with your annual subscription.
