How do you rate your vocabulary? Are you a Scrabble fanatic? Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Scrabble competition scheduled for Saturdays in August has been postponed until September, but that means there’s still time for you to take part.

Donate books to help disadvantaged children - Last updated: 31/07/2015
We’re pleased to again support the annual Book Appeal run by the ACT Branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia. Donations of brand new books can be dropped off at any of our library branches during August. You can help by donating a new book or two suitable for someone aged between 0 and 18. A book is a meaningful gift to give to a child, one that offers entertainment and aids social development as well as contributing to long-term educational benefits. Donations will be gifted to local disadvantaged children at Christmas time. Unfortunately the demand for books is often greater than the amount donated. Donations are being collected throughout August.

Next time you log into your account, you’ll need to change your PIN from 4 digits to 6 characters and make it a combination of numbers and letters. Make sure you choose a strong PIN (don’t use a sequential number, numbers from your membership card, a birthday or easily guessed number). Follow the link above for more information.

Commemorating the ANZAC Centenary - Last updated: 02/04/2015
In 2015 we commemorate the ANZAC Centenary, and to acknowledge this we will be remembering the men and women of the ACT who served in WWI by 'calling the roll'. Starting in April, we will post about each of these people on our blog and share this information on social media. We encourage you to look for these posts, read and share them. We also invite you to search, browse and contribute to the ACT Memorial database www.memorial.act.gov.au and to visit the ACT Memorial in person on London Circuit, Civic, opposite Civic Square. The ACT Memorial honours the men and women of the ACT who served their country in war, conflict, peacekeeping and humanitarian missions, some of whom paid the supreme sacrifice.
