Self check has arrived.

The Library has installed 2 self check kiosks.  The process to borrow items is very simple and we have had lots of positive comments, “So easy to use”

All you need to do is have your Library card with you to use this service.  Staff are available to assist or guide you through the process.

Some people are concerned we are going to lose our jobs but rest assured that this is not the case.

1st of April …

April Fool’s Day is a day to play tricks on friends and to create hoax events. Radio stations and other media often announce silly news items on this day.

What we promote here today is not a prank – but a serious reminder for everyone to check their smoke detectors.

Smoke alarms should be checked monthly and batteries need to be changed annually, with  the 1st of  April  chosen by the WA Department of Fire and Emergency Services to remind householders to do so.  Stay safe !
