Linville BBQ & Awards Evening

The children, community members and parents/care givers enjoyed a lovely BBQ meal and deserts provided under the school building.  The children received their awards, performed Treasure Island  and a musical piece, where else, but on the tennis court.  A totally enjoyable evening.

I would like to acknowledge the effort of our Library staff and the excellent standard of service that is offered through our libraries regionwide.  The current range of services are very comprehensive and accommodate all sections of our communities.  Well done!
