Library Chit Chat - 19th June 2017

What’s On at Yass Library

Library Open Day

We are having an open day on Thursday 29th June with lots of fun activities planned including:

Library Catalogue Demonstrations

Want to learn how to search for items, how to reserve items and how to check your membership details on our new catalogue? We will be having demonstrations of our new library catalogue at 10.30am, 4pm and 5.30pm.

Special Storytime

We’re celebrating our love of libraries with a special storytime at 11am.  Join us for some stories, song and craft.

Official Launch of Our New Catalogue and our New Library Cards

At 4pm we will be the official launch of our new library cards.  Everyone is being issued with a new library card as part of our transition, so next time you come in to borrow we will swap your old card for one of our new ones.
