Free reusable bags
Macquarie Regional Library, New South Wales, incorporating the Councils of Dubbo Regional, Narromine and Warrumbungle will be offering free reusable library bags to the community when they borrow from any branch of the library.
This offer coincides with the region’s major retailers and supermarkets eliminating single-use plastic bags.
Manager of Macquarie Regional Library, Kathryn McAlister, said she was happy to help the community reduce its use of plastic bags by handing out free library bags.
“Each library member is eligible to receive the free reusable library bag which can double as eco-friendly shopping bags.
“We hope this initiative will encourage more members of the community to visit their local library.
“It is also a way to say thank you to our regular borrowers.”
Ms McAlister said this was a great time to visit the local library to experience a range of engaging and exciting programs including technology classes, coding and robotics workshops, Lego clubs, children’s story time, book clubs and author visits.
