Christmas at the Library

christmas_banner_blogThere’s so much festive joy to find at the library this Christmas…

Christmas is the perfect time to check out your local library. It’s a place where you can enjoy festive displays, helpful staff, friendly community members and plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained during the holiday season. Not to mention the usual books, DVDs, CDs, graphic novels and online resources that you can borrow and enjoy for those summer public holidays.
