Unlike countries in the Northern Hemisphere, March in Australia brings with it the beginnings of the cool and visually stunning season of autumn. In addition to the gorgeous weather in March, there are lots of things to do in the Western Downs at a library near you!

Why not try bird watching in Bell, cooking in Dalby, pick up a copy of Graziher magazine, try a new author (we recommend Charlotte Nash), or join a new group such as Bookclub, Conversations in English, Storytime or a craft group?  For the kids, we've got Extreme Film-making and Illustrator workshops coming this Easter - stay tuned!

There is something for everyone at a Western Downs Library. 

P.s. Remember to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date news and info!
