February is Library Lover's Month at the library, and we've got plenty of things you'll love!

Now that all the big kids have gone back to school, why not drop into your local library for Storytime with the little ones? After the success of her first event, local author Karen Land is going on tour to showcase her self-published book - book your spot before it's too late! If you have friends or family members that need a little technology boost, check out Tech Savvy for Seniors - sessions will be held in 6 locations in the Western Downs. Or, if you're looking for a new hobby, check out one of our fantastic Bookclubs in the region.
