Important News Update


Library Tours.

We have a new library manager, Fiona Vagg. A few weeks ago in Kaleidoscope Fiona gave a talk on the services provided by the Library; those present found it interesting and were surprised at the extent of the services offered.  She suggested that some of our members may like to have a tour of the library.

There are two types of tours.  One takes about half an hour and shows parts of the library not usually seen.  The other is a 2 hour session (maximum 6 people) which shows you how to access eBooks and other online services.  For this you must hold a current library card. You need to arrive with your own device

We are arranging tours of the library at different times. From next week we will put up lists of dates and times on the notice board in the morning tea room 6 for you to sign for whichever tour suits you.  So please look in if you are not already attending morning tea.


Drysdale House Lunch 23th May

We have organised a luncheon at Drysdale house on Thursday 23rd May from 12 to 2 pm.  All members and friends are invited.  The cost will be $25 for lunch, a sweet and tea or coffee.   There will be a list put up on our notice board in room 6 for you to put your name down.  As usual money is to be put in an envelope with your name and phone number and the amount on the outside.  We will have a box on the table for you t place your envelopes or you may give it to Beth Jeffrey our social co-ordinator.  Final dates for the payment is Wednesday May 15th


Trivia Afternoon

As usual we intend to hold our Trivia afternoon in the second term around July/August.


New courses

Our course programmer Carol Rossendell would appreciate some more tutors to present lectures to fill the spaces she has in the next few terms.  If you have expertise or a subject you would like to explore in discussion with our members please get in touch with her by phone on 0409 698 198 or email .  Alternatively if you know of someone with expertise or knowledge or any speciality, serious or amusing, please let Carol know their names and contact details and she will get in touch with them.
