MidCoast Libraries are ranked tenth for items loaned per residents, ninth for loans per item in the collection and second for loans per staff member.

Library Manager Chris Jones said there are only two library services in the entire State that appear in the Top 10 for all three categories, and MidCoast is one of them.

“It’s a testament to how important our libraries are in the MidCoast region, how much amazing work the staff do, and how much our community uses them.”

Diversity also plays a major part in the success of our local Library.

On Friday 8 March and 2.30 pm, Meditation teacher Mick Marcon, will be back at the Tea Gardens Library with another talk on ‘How to Solve Our Human Problems’.

“His visit last year proved so popular, we’re very happy to have him back again” Librarian Carol Johnson said.

Mick Marcon is the author of 22 highly acclaimed books that transmit the ancient wisdom of Buddhism to the modern world.

The event is free, but bookings are essential by heading to midcoastlibraries.com.au
There are regular weekly groups for all ages at the Tea Gardens Library.

There’s Baby Rhyme Time on each Wednesday from 9.30am until 10am.

And for Preschoolers there’s ‘Storytime’ on each Monday between 9.30 and 10.30am.
