This Wednesday is the book bag delivery day to our Shop Bound library clients. If you are not already a member of this program, it just takes a phone call to (02) 6740 2190 to be added to the borrower list. If you can’t leave your shop, or if you work in a shop and don’t have the time to visit the library, you are eligible to have a bag of books delivered to your workplace each fortnight. You pick how many books or magazines you would like to read or listen to, and library staff does the selection, checks the books out to you, and delivers them to your work location! You have the choice of books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, talking books, or Large Print books. With over 17.000 titles to choose from, there is something for everyone! Better still, it’s FREE!
Also free, and a very new service, is our digital books and magazines platform rbDigital. Anyone with a Gunnedah Shire Library card can download the app on their device and download a selection of books, magazines or talking books to read or listen to on their device. It’s excellent for people going on holidays, doing a lot of driving, or going on a long car, train or plane trip. Hop onto the library’s web site, and follow the prompts or ask the library staff for assistance in accessing this great resource.
This week sees the start of the Library’s Spring Book Sale!
Books for sale are donations that don’t fit into the library’s selection policy; books that have reached the end of their shelf life, aren’t being used or are slightly damaged. Books will be two dollars each, and magazines and paperbacks will be 20 cents. Books for sale will include all genres – mystery, romance, thrillers, general fiction, and all areas of nonfiction, biographies as well as picture books and children’s fiction.
The money raised in the sale will go towards purchasing new titles, so pop down to the library and save your favourite titles and authors, or simply pick up a book that piques your interest!
See you soon at the library!
