From 20-26 May, the community is invited to discover the range of services and resources available at Kempsey Shire Library as part of Library and Information Week 2019.
The week aims to raise the profile of libraries and information service professionals in Australia and showcase the services that libraries provide to their local communities.
Team Leader of Library Services, Angie Meers, said the theme for Library and Information Week 2019 is ‘Truth, Integrity and Knowledge’.
“Our library plays an important role as a community hub where people from all walks of life can connect and access the huge range of innovative programs and services on offer,” she said.
“During the week, we are encouraging residents to drop into the library to discover something new or attend some of the free events.”
