Western Downs Libraries are the best kept secret in town. If you're not getting your family to the library regularly, here are some reasons you may want to reconsider:

Libraries are funWestern Downs Libraries offer free events and activities for children and adults alike.

Libraries have a lot to offer. You can borrow movies, audiobooks, music and magazines. You can download Apps such as RBDigital, BorrowBox and Storybox Library that allow you to listen to stories, read magazines and eBooks wherever you are.

Libraries foster a love of reading. Regular visits to the library as a family make for wonderful memories and connect joy with reading. Make it a day out together when you peruse the shelves slowly, explore different subjects, and delight in the abundance of books at your fingertips.
