The Blog Buster Mystery

 Bonnie was sitting outside The Briny Café on a Blue Monday. She was reading a Letter from Chicago and wondered if she had discovered Lola’s Secret. Could she now look Lola in The Face knowing what she now suspected could be true?

She frowned, thinking, Matilda is Missing but is it a murder in Cold Blood or had Tilda escaped her Dark Predator in The Opal Desert? And what lay behind The Decision to Kill Alex Cross? Could the two events be connected?

 “God help me” she groaned. I feel like I’m Running Blind and this Letter from a Stranger has turned my life upside down. She and Lola had been a Sisterhood Everlasting but now it seemed they could both be Fallen Angels.

One thing was for sure, Bonnie had to find out!

Pup Cake Day in the Library

Cupcakes for sale!
On Monday the 17th of August, the Library joined in the second annual RSPCA Cupcake Day to help raise money for all creatures great and small.


Enthusiastic staff members baked over 200 cakes, inspired by their pets, which were enjoyed with a cuppa by Library patrons and staff alike.
A special treat was the visit from Jasmin, Daphne and Calvin, three soon to graduate guide dogs which, along with their trainers, charmed children and adults alike.

Visiting guide dogs

 In all, over $500 was raised for the RSPCA and a fun day was had by all. One staffer admitted the donation wasn’t for the cakes.
It was just to pat the dogs!
