Summer Opening Hours Library

Mon-Fri: 9.15-4pm
Sat: Closed
Extended opening hours will commence again in September

Book of the Month June

The book unfolds as a monologue that Changez delivers to a mysterious American operative over dinner at a Lahore cafe. The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a cleverly constructed story of disenchantment with America and of mutual prejudice and misrepresentation.

Book of the Month-April

Book of the Month
Adamson's compelling debut novel tells the wintry tale of 19-year-old Mary Boulton and her frantic odyssey across Idaho and Montana in 1903. The details of Boulton's sad past slowly emerge as she reluctantly ventures into the mountains, struggling to put distance between herself and her two brothers-in-law, who track her like prey in retaliation for her killing of their kin. As she moves further away from civilisation, her path from retribution to redemption slowly unfurls. The Outlander is the haunting tale of one woman’s journey deep into the wild.

Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize
Longlisted for the IMPAC Literary Award

Book of the Month

Steve Toltz's debut novel, A Fraction of the Whole, takes the form of Martin Dean's confession of his failures and hopes to his son, Jasper. It’s a story that takes them from the Australian bush to the cafes of Paris, from the Thai jungle, asylums, labyrinths and criminal lairs, and from the highs of first love to the lows of failed ambition.

Short listed for the Man Booker Prize 2008
