Media Release - A great news story from your local Library

With things changing so rapidly the Nambucca Valley Council has great news for those looking for entertainment during this period of self-isolation. Library members now have free access to thousands of e-books, e-audio, e-magazines and much, much more with the library’s e-collection.

The e-collection is a fantastic resource if you have children currently at home from school. There’s plenty for all ages including free access to the Encyclopedia Britannica Online, virtual excursions at numerous museums and galleries, and e-books for all reading levels.

Mayor Councillor Rhonda Hoban OAM said, ‘The physical libraries are closed, in an effort to protect the well-being of our community and the library team, but we have an extensive e-collection available 24/7. There’s something for everyone. Now is the time to trace your family history, learn a new hobby or just listen to a favourite book.’

In other good news the Mayor has advised, ‘The Nambucca Valley Council libraries have auto renewed all current loans indefinitely and waived all overdue fines during this period.’
