On Sunday afternoon from 2pm – 4pm friends are invited to Orange City Library to share in refreshments, snacks and some fun time playing with new Lego sets to break the ice and get chatting.

The Library’s new Business Administration Trainees Claire and Andreas have been busy preparing for the event creating picnic sets and sorting Lego for the special Library Lovers’ Day event.

Orange City Mayor Cr Reg Kidd said Library Lovers’ Day celebrates the valuable role that libraries play in our lives.

“This year it will be all the more special given last year’s pandemic lockdown when we were closed from March to June,” Cr Kidd said.

“It will be a special day for the library team to re-connect with our community, virtually and in person and for the community to show their love for libraries. Be sure to get down to the Library with your children, grandchildren and anyone you know for a fun learning experience.”

Orange City Councils Services Committee chair Cr Scott Munro said Library Lovers’ Day celebrates the valuable role that libraries play in our lives.

“We are inviting people to come into our library, discover our range of services and join up.

Make a Central West Libraries card your Library Lovers’ gift that will last and give enjoyment for years. Membership is free.”

Acting Central West Libraries Manager Sean Brady said Library Lovers’ Day celebrates the valuable role that libraries play in our lives.

“Our libraries are re-invigorating this year with more programs, activities, events and author visits,” Mr Brady said.

“And on Sunday afternoon bring a friend and together enjoy refreshments, snacks and simply take time out to play with some Lego and chat.”

“We’ll dust off the record player and spin some tunes for a relaxing time in the Library.”
