The Gin Gin Library is an important learning centre and gathering place for locals with a range of upcoming events to discover from book clubs and story play to an interactive ocean experience.

Located in the Gin Gin Community Hub, the Gin Gin Library provides free access to information and supports literacy and education.

Bundaberg Regional Council Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the Gin Gin Library provided a vital service connecting people to resources and opportunities, which included a number of events throughout the year.

“These community events include story play every Monday during the school term, where families with children under 5 can come together for a fantastic morning of rhymes, songs and play,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Gin Gin Library is the first Council branch library to host the Ocean Interactive space from 5 February – 16 March, which has been designed to help little ones enjoy fun and enriching experiences whilst learning about the ocean and its amazing creatures.”

Cr Learmonth said there was also plenty on offer for the whole family at Gin Gin Library.

“Gin Gin Library hosts a book club for adults on the last Monday of each month from 12.30 pm.

“The Kids’ Book Club on the first Thursday of each month is also quite popular.

“The library also offers a diverse range of physical resources to the Gin Gin community, including books, DVDs, magazines, junior fiction, large print and picture books, as well as the popular seed library.

“Local residents can borrow a book from one of their favourite authors, read a magazine or join in one of the many community events the library facilitates.”
