LOVE was in the air at the Mossman Library last Thursday night.
About 40 library lovers attended the Book Lover’s Night Out with funfilled activities such as book trivia, charades and more.
The Book Lovers’ Night Out was held to celebrate the annual Library Lovers’ Day , which encourages library users to ‘uncover something new’ at their local library.
Douglas Libaries Team Leader Debbie Somersall said she was delighted with the turn-out.
“It’s great when people come along and support these events,” she said.
“The team worked hard to pull the evening together and were very pleased with the results. We will certainly plan to do more things like this in the future.”
The event is one of many the Mossman Library will play host to this year.
Baby Rhyme Time and Storytime, free tech savvy workshops and free lego and Knex are some of the popular programs currently running.
Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu, who is also a board member of the State Library of QLD, said the Port Douglas and Mossman libraries play a pivotal role in the community.
“The library had a bustling end to 2019 with a school holidays activities, First 5 Forever program and book launch bringing an end to another busy year,” she said.
“We have about 6000 library members who relish the opportunity to have a place where they can come and feel connected.”
“Today’s Libraries support the community in its educational and recreational needs and our Library Team encourages the public to let us know what services and facilities they would like to see.”
Douglas Libraries offers library services to the community through libraries at Mossman and Port Douglas.
Douglas Libraries provide traditional library resources as well as online resources, including E Books, E Audio Books and free downloadable music.
