Kempsey Early Intervention has been successful in applying for grant funding from ADHC to purchase books to help families of children with different abilities. Professionals, carers and interested community members are invited to the launch of these new resources at the “Ability Info” to be held at Kempsey Library at 10:30am on Friday 21 November.

Join us at the library for morning tea, story time and face painting, and view new titles on autism, Down Syndrome and parenting techniques.

Bookings are not required. For more information please contact Kempsey Early Intervention on 6562 6491


Celebrating 75 years of public libraries in New South Wales

Cover of Celebrating 75 years

Monday 3 November marks the 75th Anniversary of the NSW Library Act 1939.

Kempsey Library will celebrate this milestone with a display of historic newspaper articles about our library service, gleaned from back issues of the Macleay Chronicle and Argus. 

Library staff invite all community members to visit the library during the month of November to contribute a ‘favourite library memory’ to the storyboards in each of our library branches.


Food for Fines

The annual ‘Food for Fines’ amnesty starts in November - library users with overdue fines can have these fines cancelled in exchange for a donation of non-perishable food. The amnesty is also directed at library users with long overdue items. By returning these items during the amnesty period, any fines generated may also be cancelled by donating a food item.

All food collected at the libraries will be given to Icare, an initiative of the Macleay Coast Christian Outreach Centre.

The amnesty will be operating until 31 January 2015, at Kempsey, South West Rocks, Stuarts Point and Hat Head branches.
