Library Visit 2019 – Queanbeyan City Library

Today I incorporated a library visit with our caravan shopping. We went to the NSW service in Queanbeyan to enquire about registering a vehicle in NSW. The Queanbeyan City Library was the fourth library I visited during a recent family road trip to Queensland. PLEASE NOTE: Since I visited and wrote this review the Queanbeyan…

Library Visit 2019 – Holbrook Library

I visited the Holbrook Library on the same day I visited Euroa Library. We were still on the way to Canberra from Melbourne on a recent family road trip to Queensland. This was a short visit as we only really stopped by for lunch (not at the library but at the Submarine HMAS Otway). Date…

Library Visit 2019 – Euroa Library

I came about this library via a road trip stopover to Canberra from Melbourne (man, that was a LONG drive!) – making this my second library visit for this trip. So while my boys were looking at tanks and war memorial displays at Euroa – I went to the library. Of course! Date & time…

It’s called The Burrow and it’s a little community library located underneath the restaurant/café. It’s full of donated books (including Braille) and…

Apps’solutely

This is how much I know about apps. I overheard at the library the other day about a new (I say new because I’ve never heard of such a wonderful thing) iPhone app especially for students. This app is used for referencing books that students have cited for their assignments or essays. If you’ve been…

Am I mad? – A reading project?!

I just had a brilliant idea! I’m going to read 6-8 books and other reading material within six weeks. I don’t think I’ve read that many within a six week period ever– not even when I was in High School. The most I can do now is read one book in six weeks. What a…
