Library News

During the month of February, the Library is collecting used children’s books to sell in a used book sale!  If you have any children’s books you are ready to part with the Library would be happy to accept your donations.

The Library Book Review Challenge continues!  We have over a hundred entries so far! Complete a Book Review sheet from the Library for every book you read and submit it back to the Library to be entered. Tell us what you think of each book and give it a rating out of 5 stars! Each completed Book Review is an entry into a book draw. All of the entries are being displayed in and around the Library so take a look if you’re searching for a good book!  The Challenge ends February 28th.

Please follow the SQE Library on Instagram sqe_library or Twitter @SQE_library to see photos and keep up with all the events in the Library.
