Wonderful news - the refurbishments at Nabiac are finished and already we've had great feedback.
If you've never visited our library in the Nabiac Showground and want to see what all the fuss is about now you've got the perfect excuse.
Whilst we're on great news, the response from students to our HSC nights has been amazing. We had 240 students across the two libraries attend the four nights. The feedback has been so positive we're planning more for September.
Remember all HSC students in our area can collect an exclusive HSC print card from their school, providing free printing at any MidCoast library branch, available until November 30.
For those looking for a different movie-watching experience you can join us at Tea Gardens library this Friday, September 6 to watch the film Mule.
The event gives you a chance for a chat afterwards, over a cup of tea. If you can't make it to the sessions, check out the amazing new Kanopy Film collection, available, free, through our website.
We have two author workshops coming up. You can join local author Joel Wakely, at Wingham library on September 16, to hear him talk about his latest and third book The Passion for Utes - An Australian Obsession.
And local author and screenwriter, Kaneana May will be talking about her debut novel, The One, at Forster library on September 24.
Copies of the books will be available for sale on the day at both events.
We also have two more of our popular workshops planned for September. At Stroud on September 16, we'll be running a free beeswax wrap workshop. Imagine never having to buy cling wrap again.

As we've recently celebrated Family History Week, why not take advantage of our ongoing service.
