Crookwell Library has five new books added to its collection, thanks to the Crookwell CWA Evening Branch.

The new books, valued at $155, cover a range of topics, including health and wellbeing and gardening.

Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s Manager, Library Services, Michaela Olde, said the new books will help replace some of the 22 titles damaged in a storm which hit the library in May last year, but weren’t covered by insurance.

“Part of the Health, Wellbeing and Gardening Section was damaged, which left a gap in the titles we could offer our library users,” Ms Olde said.

“On behalf of Council and the community I would like to thank the Crookwell CWA Evening Branch for their generous donation.”

Crookwell CWA Evening Branch Secretary, Jenny Painter, said the members decided as a group which titles they wanted to donate.

“We do regular fundraising via street stalls and used some of the money raised to purchase these books,” Mrs Painter said.

“We like to support the community wherever we can and saw this as an opportunity to give back.”
