Go Green at the Library

Libraries Week, October 2-8

As part of the Green Libraries Network, Aura Libraries are looking forward to hosting lots of green activities during Libraries Week, from October 2-8. We will be hosting community support drop-in sessions, where there will be information available to help you with the cost of living.

Did you know an easy way to 'go green' is to make use of all the fabulous books and resources we have available in Aura Libraries, as highlighted in this title...
