The library will be closed from 6pm Thursday December 22 until 10am Wednesday January 11 for the holidays.
Ebooks will still be available from our OverDrive and Libby platforms during this period.
We wish you a very merry festive season and a happy new year.

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.
