Welcome to 2015!
Welcome to our first Snippets for 2015. Your Committee has planned a full year of activities to involve all Friends and, hopefully, bring other library-lovers to Friends’ events. Events manager Kirsten Harvey, has come up with a list of events for the year. So, get out your diaries, and set aside the following dates:
Wednesday 4th March 10 am, Nuriootpa Library: “Bring a Friend to Meet the Friends” Morning Tea. As the title implies, this is an opportunity for you to bring another library lover, who may not be a Friend, to meet us and talk about our common love of literature and the library. Bookings essential please on 8563 8440.
23rd to 28th March: Lyndoch Book Sale.
Thursday 7th May 10 am: Mother’s Day Morning Tea and draw of Mother’s Day Raffle.
Saturday 20th June 6.30 pm: Quiz Night, venue to be confirmed.
Thursday 9th, Friday 10th, Saturday 11th July, 10am to 4 pm daily: Tanunda Book Sale.
Thursday 20th August, 5.30 pm, Nuriootpa Council Chambers: Friends of the Barossa Library Annual General Meeting.
Thursday 10th September, 5.30 to 7.30 pm, Nuriootpa Library: Wine and Cheese Night.

Tuesday 1st December 10.30 am, on the lawns at the Visitors Information Centre, Tanunda: Christmas Morning Tea.
Not all dates or venues can be fixed at this stage. Our aim is to increase our membership, particularly amongst the younger generation, many of whom are making extensive use of library facilities, and may be willing to participate in the work of the Friends after meeting members and attending some of the functions listed above.
If you have any comments or suggestions, we will be more than happy to consider them.
