Biggenden School library complete

THE construction of the new library at Biggenden State School is complete.

The massive task of moving books from the current library has begun with help from parent volunteers and students.

New furniture and fittings will soon be installed in the air-conditioned building, which should be ready for use next month.

Family history week

NATIONAL Family History Week starts this Friday and runs until August 8.

Residents are invited to start their family tree, organise family photos, start a journal or write their life story.

Anything that raises awareness of history, family or local, is the aim of the week.

Childers' residents who do not own their own computer and are interested in researching their family history can make use of the computers at the town library or the Neighbourhood centre kiosk if they are eligible.

Library computers may be booked for a maximum of one hour a day.
