7000 Tiny Houses

Look what appeared in the library. 

7000 tiny houses is an interactive art exhibition through Arts Centre Melbourne’s Betty Amsden Participation Project, a four year community arts initiative with a focus on opening up access to, and engagement with, the arts.

Members of the public are encouraged to keep an eye out for the tiny houses, to move them, photograph and tag them #homemelb in social media, to let the journey continue

IT Outage at Carrum Downs Library

On Thursday the 26th of February from 5pm to 8pm all IT services will be turned off across the Frankston City Council.  This will impact the service at Carrum Downs Library.  Anyone seeking to pay their rates or other council bills during this time MUST bring the appropriate paperwork with them so that the staff can process a manual receipt.  All payments will be entered into the system on Friday morning.

AFL 2015 - Team changes at Frankston

Frankston Footy fans will notice changes to the team lineup this year. The performance on the field will differ markedly due to trades, de-listings, retirements, and changes to strategies.

Sadly all good things come to an end. Who remembers: Ron Barassi; tight football shorts; ‘the biff’; Fitzroy; the Swans? Likewise we have decided to retire the Blogalogue’s annual footy tipping competition.

We acknowledge and thank the hard work of past players and coaches who devoted their time over these past six seasons in pursuit of the perfect round pick. Thanks Harps.

We thank the devoted fans of the game because without you this game means nothing. To quote an Australian champion, “We luv you’s all!”

We wish you all good fun and fortune in joining other footy tipping competitions.
