We're a small community library that aims to meet the needs of our community, with great books and practical services. 

We're not your average quiet library, particularly when we've got a school or kindy group in!  Feel free to pop in and read the paper, hop on a computer or just hang out and read.  After school our regulars drop by to work on their Library Avengers tasks, do a spot of colouring in, or play with the board games.
