Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

IT WILL be party time at the Port Dou­glas Li­brary Kiosk this Fri­day, when staff and pa­trons cel­e­brate the ser­vice’s first birth­day. The li­brary kiosk was es­tab­lished in Fe­bru­ary 2010 to re­place the de­com­mis­sioned mo­bile li­brary and pro­vides res­i­dents of Port Dou­glas with full ac­cess to the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil’s li­brary cat­a­logue, as well as pho­to­copy­ing and com­puter use. “This ser­vice has en­sured that res­i­dents of Port Dou­glas don’t miss out on all the ben­e­fits of a per­ma­nent li­brary ser­vice,” Mayor Val Schier said. Divi­sion 10 Coun­cil­lor Ju­lia Leu said she had re­ceived ex­tremely pos­i­tive feed­back since the kiosk ser­vice was es­tab­lished. “It has a pleas­ant am­bi­ence and the li­brary team are in­cred­i­bly help­ful,” Cr Leu said. “They have done a fan­tas­tic job in mak­ing it a hub of ac­tiv­ity for the Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity.” A birth­day cel­e­bra­tion will be held at the li­brary kiosk this Fri­day, April 1, from 10am. “Dewey”, the li­brary mas­cot will at­tend and mem­bers of the pub­lic are in­vited to join the party. The li­brary kiosk is lo­cated at the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Hall, 13-29 Mow­bray Street, Port Dou­glas, and is open on Tues­days 1-5pm, Thurs­days 9am-1pm and Fri­days 9am-1pm. Con­tact the kiosk on 4099 9497 or through the Moss­man Li­brary on 4099 9496.
