Sun seekers will again be able to relax and unwind with a free book on Cable Beach courtesy of Broome Public Library’s Beach Books program. Each Wednesday through June and July, visitors to the world-famous beach will be invited to select from an array of books before heading down on to the sand. The primary purpose of Beach Books is to share the joys of the local library, where one story can be shared among many. The books, which are donated to the library for community use, are able to be kept, swapped, returned or shared by those who choose to take them, a scheme which sees them treasured by all. Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey says the program is an idyllic way to enjoy a renowned beach. “Since the beginning of Beach Books, 1800 books have been given away,” he said. “The success of Beach Books is a real credit to our library staff.” Mr Tracey said the Shire of Broome’s 2020 Community Scorecard — a survey taken by over 1000 Broome people — revealed the town’s library services had the highest performance score in the Shire. “Initiatives such as Beach Books and the positive results from the Scorecard is what keeps the Broome Public Library held in such high regard by our community,” he said. “Please join our friendly library staff at Cable Beach and take part in this year’s Beach Books fun.” Beach Books will run from a stall set up at the top of the stairs, next to Zanders, from 10.45-11.30am every Wednesday.
