A bookworms paradise at TAFE

THERE’S now even more to read at the Coffs Harbour TAFE library.

The Glenreagh St campus is buzzing with activity following the launch of a large selection of new books and DVD’s at a morning tea.

“We have just received a whole range of new titles to add to our extensive range of resources, including quite a number of new ‘lifestyle’ books – cook books, gardening, self-help, money-saving tips, yoga, pilates, beauty, travel, home decorating and biographies,” said campus librarian Janine Martin.

The launch was supported by the morning tea hosted by the students of Fashion Technology and Design and attracted a great crowd of interested students and staff.

Student association officer Mark Thorn said the Fashion students were using the morning tea as part of their fundraising activities for their trip to Taree for the Flair Fashion Awards on August 27.

The awards provide an opportunity for Fashion students, designers and independent labels statewide to showcase their creations.

“Members of the public are welcome to come along to the TAFE library for a quiet place to browse and read, although borrowing privileges are for enrolled students,” Ms Martin said.
