New Library hours have started
From 6 May, the Library will be closing at 7.00 pm in the evenings, and we will be open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday. The times have been updated on the hours page, and you will see that Bluff, too, is now going to be open from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm on Saturday.
Music month and we are doing it again!
Yes, we are offering two items for the price of one on all multimedia materials. That means you can get out the TV series you have been meaning to watch, or organise a gaming session with your friends at half the usual price. The offer applies to all DVDs, CDs and electronic games, and continues until the end of May.
We are also hard at work organising a series of musical performances for the month of May, to be held in the Library foyer. Details have now been updated on our events calendar.
