Library Connect February 2024

You are here

This edition of Library Connect has the usual listing of new books, five new artworks and links to articles on Alexandre Descubes and Penny Olsen. 

Past issues of Library Connect are available on the library catalogue site.

The library is staffed Mon - Fri 9.30 - 4.30 or 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.
