Whats on at Your Library?

ONE LIBRARY IS COMING!

Shire of Harvey Libraries and 10 other local government are happy to announce a new, sharing Library Management System, which will give library members access to a larger supply of resources.  The One Library network is the first of its kind in Western Australia, connecting 23 Libraries over the South West; giving greater access to the community. As with any system upgrades, during the month of March there will be some disruptions to some services provided at Australind, Harvey, Binningup and Yarloop libraries but we will endeavour to provide our patrons with the best service possible.  We will notify patrons of what library services will be effected as soon as possible.

Shire of Harvey libraries will commence the use of One Library in April 2017.

For more information on One Library please click on the link below to view our detailed brouchure. Information is also available at the Australind, Harvey, Binningup and Yarloop libraries.

Story and Rhyme Time Sessions – Every Week

Weekly Story and Rhyme Time sessions are held for under school aged children. Babies and children who love books and have the pleasure of hearing stories and rhymes have a flying start when it comes to learning to read by themselves. Sessions are organised locally and take place in libraries. They incorporate a mix of songs, rhymes, rhythm and movement as well as providing the opportunity to share games, novelty books and toys. Head along to your local library to take part in rhymetimes and other events – children are never too young to join the library, it is free and lots of fun!

 

HARVEY:

Story Time: Every Wednesday at 9.30am

AUSTRALIND:

Story Time: Every Wednesday at 10am. Rhyme Time: Every Tuesday and Friday at 10am.

Special story times are held for day cares, play groups and preschools on request. Please contact the Principal Librarian on 9729 0390 for more information.
