New phone number for Home Hill Branch Library
With the introduction of the NBN and better internal communication systems the Home Hill Branch Library phone has now been added to the Council phone system. Unfortunately this has also meant the introduction of a new phone number. Jocelyn can now be reached on 4783 9969. The previous number currently has a diversion in place to direct calls to the new number, but this won’t last forever – so best to update the number now, wherever you have it stored!
