Christmas Gift Drop

We have had an amazing response from the community to our call for gifts of toys. These donated gifts are for the children of our resettled families. Wonderful elves from the Library have been wrapping furiously in time for Santa to deliver these gifts over Christmas. A thank you to Jillian and Katie, two of our fabulous librarians who organised this initiative and finally a big thank you to those who gave - your generosity knows no bounds!
