IT’S good to see more activity coming back to the Inverloch Library, albeit with space restrictions

And branch manager Inverloch Library, Jo Bowler, has taken the opportunity to encourage everyone to pop into their local library to see what’s new, and to be welcomed back into our wonderful community spaces.

“Here at the library, we are very excited to be gradually getting back to normal. This means we can start holding events and programs again,” said Jo.

“In the Easter school holidays we will be holding two events for kids, Origami Monster Bookmarks, two sessions last Wednesday April 7 and then a Paper Plane Extravaganza on Wednesday, April 14 at 2.30pm.

“We also have a fortnightly English Conversation Group, aimed at being a welcoming space for those with English as a second language and those who would like to make others feel welcome. It’s an informal group, where folks can sit and have a cuppa and make new friends!

“As with every program at the library at the moment, tickets are limited, and bookings are essential. Visit eventbrite.com.au, see the QR code on the flyers in the Library or give us a call on 5674 1169.
