Book lovers! Here is a fabulous chance to stock up your library at a very reasonable price. From Monday 4th November, the Friends of the Barossa Library will be holding a sale of surplus library books at the Mount Pleasant library. From 10 am on Monday and then during library hours for the rest of the week. Some real bargains available – paperbacks 50 cents, hardbacks $1, children’s books 20 cents, magazines 20 to 50 cents, OR, BEST OF ALL, fill up your shopping bag for just $5! Even if you don’t live up Mount Pleasant way, it is a very pretty drive up there and well worth the effort. Best of all, every cent raised goes towards improvements for the library service.
About 75 people gathered at Peter Lehmanns Winery on 20th October to meet author Susan Duncan, and what a great meeting it was! She was witty, charming, completely unaffected and won over the audience completely. She stepped up to the microphone with a sheaf of notes, started speaking, put the notes down and never referred to them again! This was a great value evening, thanks to the generosity of Peter Lehmanns Wines, always great supporters of the library, and an excellent supper organised by the library staff. There was a long queue at the Ravens Parlour table and for Susan to sign her books, so it was a worthwhile experience all round. Another Meet the Author with Fiona McIntosh coming up on November 27th, so make an entry in your diary now.
