Helen Henry is leaving us to take up the position of Librarian at
Otago Boys' High School. Helen has been part of the Blueskin Bay
library team for four and a half years and will be very much missed by
our team and community. However we hope to see Helen back as a
reliever during future school holidays.
Meaghan Kelly is leaving due to a heavy workload at school. We wish
them both the best for the future.
Bessie Van Hale has joined the Blueskin Bay team as our relieving
assistant shelver. Welcome Bessie. Welcome also to Monika Stadler who
is working on a relieving basis at the library.
Louise recommends 'Navigating midlife: women becoming themselves' by
Robyn Vickers-Willis. It's a valuable and engaging book to read if you
are journeying through those midlife years.

The medieval music and singing group who have been practising during
May will perform on Monday 2 June at the Library at 7.30pm.
