Libraries are more than books

Lyn at the Knitting and Crochet Club at the Southside Library.

Libraries literally have something for all ages, interests and abilities. From large print books, newspapers and sub-titled DVDs – to eAudiobooks, digital magazines and online training manuals, the range of resources available to borrow and access are extensive and changing constantly.

Linked in to a terrific selection of resources are the complementary library programs that extend the reach of the collection in imaginative and useful ways.

For those looking to connect and meet a new group of people, or want to learn a new skill, the local library has them covered.

The groups are free and open to all (vaccinated and non-vaccinated):

Cake Clubs provide a relaxed setting to share recipes, talk about cooking and nibble on cake. Bring a teacup or mug.

• Gracemere Library – Tuesday 22 March

• Southside Library – Thursday 3 March and 31 March

Knitting and Crochet Club at the Southside Library every Wednesday morning from 9.30am-noon invites crafters of all abilities to use donated yarn to create warm items for the annual Homeless Connect event in Rockhampton. Crafters are invited to bring their projects to the Mount Morgan Library every Friday morning from 9.30am-noon and meet with other DIY enthusiasts.

Test your trivia knowledge and have fun at the Northside Library at the monthly Tuesday Trivia event on 22 March.
