MAC Mobile Library to Visit

As part of MAC’s commitment to regional support, the MAC Mobile Library will be visiting Whyalla and surrounding areas in early April. This will be the second time this new library service will have visited the region. The MAC Mobile Library Service endeavours to support aged and community care workers in providing culturally appropriate care, by supplying resources directly to the worker.
