Library to open up new worlds

RESIDENTS of RSL Care Darlington will soon have the magic of books at their fingertips.

The retirement and residential care community officially opened their new library on Friday, and celebrations featured the launch of author Jacqueline Scott's new book.

Ms Scott also donated some of her books to the library.

RSL Care Darlington div-ersional therapist, rehab, volunteer and special events co-ordinator Kim Stokes said the new facility would provide residents with the chance to learn new skills.

“We would like to thank Bunnings in Tweed Heads for supplying and erecting the library shelves,” Ms Stokes said.

“The residents are going to help set up the library, it's a joint project between me and them.

“Marsha Dobbie has Downs Syndrome and she is going to be the librarian; it's all about giving people the chance to learn new skills.”

Ms Stokes said the residents were working towards having the new library fully operational this week.
