Morning Tony

Will you please post the attachment on HBT?
Introducing FireWise in Hogsback

The program manager met with the HCPF to seek assistance in introducing the program to the community, as controlling alien vegetation is a crucial component of reducing fire risks.

Hogsback Library now at Jikani

Hogsback Library at Jikani

Location: Hogsback Library, Jikani, Main Road, Hogsback.
Contact: Ann Webster (Library Coordinator) 0459621147 or 0762287749

The Hogsback Library has been moved to Jikani, Main Rd, Hogsback.
Re-opening scheduled for Saturday 24 November 2018

The Hogsback Library, formerly in Redcoat Lane, has been run for many years by community minded volunteers. It is open to all residents and is FREE.

We have a good selection of books, some from the Provincial Library Services and some from donations from Book Clubs and locals.

We have children’s books which are being used by many of our youngest residents who visit with their moms and plenty for older children as well.

Books may be kept for two weeks and we charge R1 per week for each overdue book

The Library is open every:

  • WEDNESDAY afternoon from 2-3pm
  • SATURDAY morning from 9.30—10.30 am.

There is a notice on the door giving details of who is on duty with phone numbers if there is a hitch!

For those who have never been to the Library, please come and have a look and browse in what must be one of the tiniest and best stocked libraries in the country.
