Atherton Library, Queensland

Atherton Library is a lovely looking library which seems to have had a recent refurbishment.

Atherton Library, Queensland
It was so popular, there were quite a few areas of it I was not able to photograph as they were in use.

It also had this listing of staff - and what you could ask them about.

Mossman Library, Queensland

The entrance to Mossman Library had a local studies display supporting a recently released book. Mossman Library, Queensland
 With some detailed information on display. Mossman Library, Queensland
 Part of the library was a quiet zone (and it was interesting how this was described). Mossman Library, Queensland
 I don't usually comment about books sales in libraries, but this was a good one. It was tidy. It was not in the entrance of the library. I don't like to see book sales dominate the entrance to libraries, especially when messy, but even when neat as it detracts from the loan items, and there should be better use made of entrance spaces to libraries.

ice cream and social media

I liked the way this ice cream company provided their social media information on site.  It was easy to see, and they were making it easy to share photographs and to follow them. This is more helpful than 'find us on [insert name of social media]'.

There were other signs too,  to provide more information about the fruit being used.  I like the way this open air storage had fruit names included.  The ice cream was great too.
