Book binge at Claremont

4 November 2020|Community News| Off Comments off on Book binge at Claremont|

THE Claremont Community Library has invited seasoned readers and those just starting out on their literary adventure to pick up a book and visit the library.

The library is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 11am to 1pm and has a wide variety of book genres ranging from mythical, historical and thrilling.

In July, the Claremont Community Library reopened after closing because of COVID-19.

Volunteer Christine Bradford was the first person to arrive as soon as it reopened to stock up on books.

“I was waiting and looking forward to that day,” Ms Bradford said.

Since July, the library has seen a resurgence in membership and borrowings, with people keen to get their fiction fix and volunteers ready and willing to help.

Volunteer coordinator Jan Southorn said membership was $10 per year and borrowing was free.

“We’ll help you find your favourite, hunt down a best seller or discover a hidden treasure,” she said.

“We have a large selection of books including large print books.”

The Claremont Community Library is a community led initiative run by local volunteers and supported by Glenorchy City Council to make Glenorchy a better place to live.
