Book Club Readers
With the extension of the lockdown throughout the region, see below a reminder about online resources that you can access in place of physical book club kits.
There are three ways you can access eBooks in our elibrary found at https://rrl.nsw.gov.au/collection/online/ebooks/
- Indyreads - the ‘Available Now’ carousel on the home page has a great selection of titles that you can simultaneously download onto your digital device.
- Libby by Overdrive - many titles have multiple copies that can be simultaneously downloaded.
- Borrowbox – Normally you cannot access simultaneous downloads with Borrowbox, but we have purchased 2 eBooks and 2 eAudiobooks in simultaneous access for use over the next two months:
Don’t forget to log in to any of these sites with your personal library membership number E.G. R123456. Your password is your date of birth (DDMMYYYY).
A huge thank you to those book clubbers who have sent in their suggestions for new books for 2022. It gives us a clearer idea of what types of books you like to read and want to see in our book club collection. It is not too late to send in suggestions at E: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep safe and keep reading!

Representations of a Communities Soul
The Greater Hume Libraries were successful in receiving a Country Arts Support Grant for this amazing community project. They worked alongside the Local Art Groups to help build community spirit through art and creativity by creating portraits of important community members in a series of workshops led by a local artist. The finished portraits are now to be unveiled online through our social media and websites as COVID- restrictions are limiting numbers of people in the Libraries. The portraits are to be held in the Henty Library, where they are displayed on the cultural wall for the foreseeable future.
