Has your passion for libraries waned?
Then get to Library Lovers’ Day in Dubbo on February 14, Valentine’s Day.
Macquarie Regional Library is hosting the event at its Dubbo Library on the corner of Macquarie and Talbragar streets.
Dubbo mayor Ben Shields is keen for residents to rekindle their love affair with the library.
“We are extremely lucky to have a library that is packed with books, DVDs, magazines and provides free internet access,” he said.
“The library is a great place to go for anyone with a passion for reading or a thirst for knowledge and Thursday is a chance to celebrate everything that it offers.”
The event will include a game called Blind Date with a Book, involving borrowers selecting a wrapped book based on “intriguing clues”.
A free morning tea and photo booth will be available between 10am and noon.
Library staff will be handing out heart-shaped chocolates.
The Dubbo Library also offers a wide range of online resources including eBooks, eAudiobooks and the new online film streaming service Kanopy, which members can access free of charge.
