Connected Seniors at the Library

We are still running Telstra Connected Seniors sessions in the Library. These sessions are designed to help you use your mobile phone – from turning it off and on, to taking pictures and loading them onto the computer.

These sessions have gotten off to a great start! Participants have been very eager to learn how to use their mobiles, connect with loved ones and take pictures. All the sessions have been well received with the public wanting more.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would  be interested in,  see our brochure. Once you decide which class best suits you, book through the library on 8397 7333.

New wheels for the community

Celebrating the arrival of the new bus.

In October the City of Tea Tree Gully got a brand new community bus!
Natalie Thorn, Council’s Activity Program Coordinator, says  “The bus is an exciting new addition to the Council. It has been a long time coming and being brand new, offers great advantages such as flip up seats, two spaces for wheelchairs and easy access.”
Great news is the Library has access to the bus, which is used by the Home Services Volunteers to bring Home Services Clients to the Library and take them home again.
Not only will it be used by the Library but also by Council to offer other great services within the Tea Tree Gully community.

New face in the Library

New trainee Chloe

Hi my name is Chloe and I’m the new trainee at the Tea Tree Gully Library.
I will be working full time over the next twelve months as part of the Partnerships Team,  to complete a Certificate 3 in Business. 
At the start of this year I moved down from Mount Compass to the city after completing Year Eleven. I am the oldest of three children and the only girl. 

I love reading books (when I have the time!) and also working with children.
This is the end of my second week and I have really enjoyed working with the lovely staff and meeting all the people who visit the library.  
I have learnt so much and look forward to working within the library and as a member of the Partnerships Team. 🙂

If you see me in the Library, please say hi!
