12 February 2018 - Media release

The community is invited to join in and take advantage of the many events and activities taking place at Campaspe Regional Library Service over the next couple of months.

Competitions, author visits, information and learning sessions can be all be expected throughout February and March.

Feel the love with Library Lovers Day throughout the month of February.

Library Services Manager, Jenny Mustey said Library Lovers Day extends the affection of Valentine’s Day by giving patrons the opportunity to share their love of books and reading in a fun way.

“Tell us how much you love a book by writing a love letter to the library.”

“Heart book recommendations are available for patrons to place into a book they have enjoyed, with prizes up for grabs for the best entry,” Ms Mustey said.

An online competition is also available to enter courtesy of Good Reading Online.

Australian historical and contemporary fiction author, Darry Fraser will be visiting the Echuca Library for an afternoon talk session on Sunday, 25 February at 2.30pm. Her last two books have been fast paced Australian historical adventures set on the iconic Murray River.

“Darry has an amazing story, a great opportunity to gain insight into her journey of writing,” Ms Mustey said.

Part of the 2018 Tech Assistance Program, all five branches of Echuca Regional Library Service will be hosting ‘Connect to Tech’ sessions focussing on navigating the internet with a focus on usage via tablets. These session will run on Thursday, 15 February at 2pm in Echuca and Thursday, 22 February at Kyabram, Rochester, Rushworth and Tongala libraries.

“Connect to Tech sessions are proving very popular with Echuca booked out and a wait list formed”.

“We encourage patrons to get in quick and reserve their spot to avoid disappointment. Echuca is booked out but positions are still available at the other four branches,” Ms Mustey said.

Other events at Campaspe libraries include free financial information sessions on 14 and 28 March as well as an International Women’s Day event on Sunday, 4 March.

Kate Torney, CEO of the State Library of Victoria and actress, writer and civil celebrant Jane Clifton will head the event with an afternoon tea and chat session at the Echuca Library.

“Every woman has a story and we are delighted to have Kate and Jane as our guest speakers this year,” Ms Mustey said.
