Do you love reading books? Do you like talking about books? You may be interested in joining our Book Club!

One title is chosen every 4-5 weeks, then we meet in the Library Lounge at 5pm on a Thursday evening to discuss and debate what we liked or didn't like about the book.

The Book Club is for ages 18+ and is completely free to join.  New members are always welcome - call or email us today!

As new digital technologies continue to be introduced into our everyday lives, we want to make sure that no one is left behind. If you are having a particular problem with a device, e-Resource, or there is a tech concept that is confusing you, talk to library staff about our Tech Help program. These half-hour or hour-long one-on-one sessions are normally held on a Friday by appointment only.

Please note that not all tech issues are within our scope of service, and library staff may guide you to external online websites and/or other resources if it is more appropriate for your enquiry. Throughout the year, we also hold group workshops on tech topics, so keep an eye on our Library Events page.
