Library groups and services
We offer a range of social groups to suit a wide variety of life stages from families with young children, students and youth, to seniors.
Established in 1987, Barossa Writers is a small group of local writers ranging from published authors to hobbyists. The meetings are a great opportunity for writers to share their work and discuss ideas. Contact Lyndoch Library 8563 8305.
|Every second Wednesday||10am||Lyndoch|
There are a number of active book club groups with up to 10 members per group, which meet at various times and locations around the region. Book sets are available to borrow from our libraries, with access to discussion sets from other libraries around the state.
A small fee of $20 applies which facilitates the purchase of additional sets of books.
