Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Ali­cia Perera

There are few bet­ter ways to show ap­pre­ci­a­tion than with home-made scones and tea, as Kar­ratha Li­brary showed se­niors on Tues­day, Novem­ber 10.

WA Se­niors Week was held from Novem­ber 8-15, and the li­brary put on a Devon­shire morn­ing tea for 30 of Kar­ratha’s se­niors to cel­e­brate.

Li­brary man­ager Les­ley DuBois spoke about the li­brary’s pro­grams for se­niors, in­clud­ing com­puter classes, 3-D print­ing and how to track ge­neal­ogy on an­ces­try.com.

Guests then took part in a quick trivia quiz, with Glo­ria Pre­ston’s hand-made book­marks given out as prizes.

Li­brary of­fi­cer Helena Mead said the event was in­tended as a show of com­mu­nity grat­i­tude for se­niors.

The se­niors said they en­joyed their morn­ing tea and felt spoilt.
