To keep you in the loop following the Prime Minister’s directive all branches of Central West Libraries will close until further notice at the close of business this afternoon (Wednesday 25 March). At this stage staff will continue to work within the branch environment on collection maintenance and other projects and will be here to take your phone calls and answer your emails.
Our key messages are:
- Please retain any items you currently have on loan – don’t worry no overdue charges will be incurred
- All loans have been extended until the end of May 2020 and we will extend this period if necessary
- Check our website and our social media (Facebook & Instagram) for updates
We are finalising a range of initiatives that will complement our existing on-line presence and we will be telling you about these in the days ahead.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the fabulous CWL team who have been working tirelessly over the past couple of weeks to ensure that this difficult transition goes smoothly. I am so proud of each and every one of them.
To you our dear members, stay safe and well. We might not see you come through our doors for a while but keep in touch and get involved in the discussions we’ll be having on-line and encourage others to join in.
With warmest wishes

Manager Central West Libraries
School Holiday Activity - I SPY
Louise and Rohan Wythes enjoyed searching for hidden items in the glass I SPY display at the Orange City Library.
It is part of the ‘Summer Reading Club’ activities which will be taking place at the Library over the school holidays. Remember to pick up your Summer Reading Club pack next time you call in!
TECH SAVVY SENIORS CLASSES DRAWING TO A CLOSE
Cowra Librarian Caroline helping Val and Ruth at the Tech Savvy Seniors class this week. There were so many attendees that our presenter Michael was run off his feet.
Cowra Library Staff are ready to supply customers with summer reading materials. Come in to the cool Library and dip into the pool filled with adventure stories, OR check out the digital media display offering music CDs, DVDs and audio books all with a Christmas or Summer theme.
Today we played carols to set the scene and I heard customers humming in (and out) of tune . The kids loved singing out loud! Their favourite was “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth “. The disc comes with the book which Maryanne read to them today.
Come in and pick up you Summer Reading Club pack. This year’s theme is Adventure!
