Biggest ever book sale at Kempsey Library
When preparations were being made for the installation of the library’s self-checking technology, a large number of books, which had not been recently borrowed, were withdrawn from the shelves and are now being offered for sale at bargain prices at the biggest ever book sale. The sale will start 10am Wednesday 26 October and run until library closing time, 1pm on Saturday 29 October. Come and meet members of the Friends of the Library Kempsey (FOLK) who will be running the sale. Proceeds will support reading activities in the shire.

Interested in researching your family history?
The Family History Group, a very active group of people who help each other research and write their family histories and who sometimes have fascinating speakers with expertise in areas of interest, will be meeting at the Kempsey Library at 10.15am on Thursday 20 October.
Remember, the library has something of interest for every member of the family, so check out the website www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/library/index.html for a calendar of activities for families, or drop in to the library and see what is on offer.
Macleay Valley Arts Council is holding a workshop to discuss the role that sculptures might play in beautifying our town. Sculpture activist and enthusiast Stephen King from Walcha will address the meeting which will start at 10am on Sunday 23 October at the Oddfellows Hall in Kemp St. Contact Gabi Brie at Kempsey Library 6566 3213 or email@example.com if you would like more information about this interesting initiative from the Arts Council or any other library activity.
