End of Life for the Classic Catalogue

At the end of December 2017, the Classic Catalogue was decommissioned. The catalogue had reached an “end of life” status. It was no longer supported by the vendor as it did not meet current security requirements. Magazine requests are available through the main catalogue by searching for the magazine, clicking on the title to view copies available and then selecting the “reserve this copy” button next to the magazine edition you would like. All other items (books, dvds and audiobooks) should be requested by using the request button next to the title.

KOGO: Knit One, Give One

Knit one, give one

Knit One Give One, KOGO, is a not for profit organisation supplying handmade garments to support people experiencing hardship. Volunteers can make a whole range of items including scarves, beanies, blankets, toys and children’s and babies’ clothing. Finished items are distributed to various community partners throughout Australia including the Salvation Army, Sacred Heart Mission, Mirabel Foundation and Open Family Australia.

Moonee Valley Libraries invites members of the community to share some warmth throughout 2018 and knit, crochet or sew for KOGO. We will be forwarding on donations throughout the year. Patterns are available on the KOGO website or ask staff for assistance.

Completed items or blanket squares may be dropped off at any of our library branches.
