We're super excited for the week ahead as our libraries across the region are gearing up for National Simultaneous Storytime this Wednesday morning. đź“–đź’« In its 18th year, NSS is an Australia wide campaign encouraging young children to read and enjoy books. This year, we will be reading 'Hickory Dickory Dash' and invite you to join in the fun by bringing your little ones down dressed in their favourite cat or mouse character! It's never too early for our children to #readtalkplaysing, so we can't wait to see you there. Find out more about your local session here:

Registering your furry best friend doesn't just come with a shiny new accessory for their collar. Registering them with Council means we can bring them home safely if they get lost or wander not only that your fee goes towards helping our pound pets adoption initiative and making sure our off-leash dog parks are neat and tidy. Visit our website for more info on registering your pet:

We'd love to introduce you to our first volunteer, Margarette Sinnamon. Margarette has been a much-loved member of the Wandoan community since 2009, where she volunteers her time wherever and whenever she can. Margarette's a passionate advocate for remote and rural communities, and loves her work helping those in need: whether it's as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Wandoan Community Commerce and Industry, Secretary for the Wandoan Health Auxiliary, or simply helping get people to their medical appointments. Margarette's outstanding work for her community was recognised earlier this year, when she was awarded Wandoan Citizen of the Year 2018 — something she's very proud of. And she hopes others in her community will follow her lead: "I am passionate about what I do and I hope that my deeds are enough incentive for others to take up the rewarding job of being a volunteer." #NVW2018
