Library Connect June 2023

You are here

This month’s Library Connect has the usual listing of new books, some very old ones, two new art works and links to a couple of recent articles on the herbarium of the future and the importance of mosses.  The library is staffed Mon - Fri 9.30 - 4.30.  Alex can be contacted by email or phone (02 6250 9480) if you need assistance.  The "Click and Collect” boxes in the Visitor Centre are still available for returning items, and Alex is very happy to leave items there for collection if that’s easier than visiting the library.
