October offers a flurry of activities

It's time to seal up the cracks, tidy the yard and bed down the garden before falling leaves become falling flakes. We have lots of info to help you do just that or if that's not your problem, we have plenty of books, music, film, fun and information to divert you as we head into the harvest season.

Sign-up for signage

Jobs in focus

Looking for work or to move up in your current workplace? We have the resources to help you from books on job hunting, career building and resume writing to public access computers to help with the paperwork.
