Edgemead Library welcomed a very special guest speaker on 8 March when they were visited by Afrikaans Author Irma Joubert to talk about her new book, “Tussen stasies.” The book was translated into English as “Girl from the train.” It has been translated and released in Dutch and German as well.
The Edgemead Library will be closing for a few weeks for some pro-active maintenance. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, exact dates have not been provided. The Edgemead Library has said that patrons will be able to return books and they are attempting to set up an interim “mobile” facility. Alternately all library members are welcome to use the surrounding libraries during the period that they are closed.
