Last week, fifteen lucky patrons were invited to be librarian selectors for an afternoon when the City of Tea Tree Gully Library took them on a purchasing excursion to Borders bookstore in the City.
A team made up of our regular borrowers from all ages and with a variety of interests were invited to choose a selection of titles that the library would stock, in a range of formats. “It’s a great way for us to have direct input into what our library has,” said one participant.
Our friends at Borders were very hospitable, supplying afternoon tea and helping us find the books on the shelves. A great time was had by all and a great way for library users to have a say in what their library stocks. Keep an eye out next year when we ask for our next round of applications!
