Librarian on holidays - opening hours over Christmas

The Desk Set

The librarian, Katie, will be on holidays from Friday 15th December until Wednesday 27th December, reopening Thursday, 28th December.

Unfortunately, the library will not be staffed during this time and will be closed to the public. During January school holidays, the library will be also closed on occasional days.

Please email your queries to rfs.library@rfs.nsw.gov.au and I will assist you on my return. Have a very delightful festive season and Merry Christmas!
