Bello book lovers welcome librarian

WITH 20 years experience at libraries in India and Coffs Harbour, Surinder Saur is the popular choice for new Bellingen Shire Council librarian.

With a long list of qualifications to back her hands-on knowledge, Surinder will be available at the Dorrigo and Urunga outposts on a regular

basis while being based at the central Bellingen Library.

One of her first tasks will be to encourage greater use of the self-serve kiosk with members having the opportunity to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet by borrowing books at least once until the draw on August 25.

"Use of the self-serve kiosk is easy, time saving and helpful for library staff,” she said.

"It allows staff to devote more time to user-education, improving the quality of service and organising more programs for the community.”

Surinder said the campaign will help promote Children's Book Week, always one of the facility's biggest activities.
