National Miscarriage Awareness Day Event “Forever in my heart”

Sunday 3rd May 2020

Library offers digital experience ALTHOUGH the doors to local libraries may be shut, there are still plenty of ways to access books and resources. Library card holders can still access audiobooks, eBooms, and eMagazines online during the library closure period. Frankston City Libraries manager Tammy Goodwin said there were multiple apps that could be used in conjunction with a library card to access reading material. “Before you pay for your audiobooks through other platforms, make sure you check our BorrowBox, RB Digital and CloudLibrary apps for the books you’re looking for with your Frankston City Libraries membership,” she said.

“Our friendly staff are only a phone call away for assistance accessing the online collection including resetting your pin, which can also be done via the Frankston City Libraries website.” Library card holders can also continue to enjoy talks from authors, with Frankston City Libraries still hosting events on the digital platform Zoom. Author Heather Rose will speak about her book Bruny on 5 May. To register for the Zoom event visit library. frankston.vic.gov.au/Whats_On. To become a member of Frankston’s library service visit library.frankston.vic.gov.au or call 9784 1020. Email enquiries to libraryenquiries@ frankston.vic.gov.au.

Frankston Times 28 April 2020

THE Korean term Geonbae is derived from the words ‘gone beer’, in other words, cheers or bottoms up. So Geonbae is what you say right before you down your Soju! The ‘Geonbae’ restaurants originated from a passion of Korean culture, food and people. A dining experience like no other! Whether you are versed in all things Korean or a complete novice, the award-winning team at Geonbae will look after you. With venues in Frankston & Hastings they have the peninsula covered. With the current restrictions, the Frankston location is temporarily closed. The good news for our Geonbae Frankston regulars, is that we are now operating out of our sister store ‘Choego’. Offering a modified Geonbae menu, Choego is also providing our home diners with their famous bubble tea, Pick up and free deliver in the Frankston and surrounding areas. Geonbae in Hastings is still offering a genuine

Korean culinary experience, except this time it is in your own home! Their takeaway menu and specials are on offer for you to come in and pick up or free delivery is offered in the Westernport area. Geonbae is also now offering Korean take home BBQ packs! They provide you with the BBQ, meat, sides and all the trimmings. As we cannot go out to dine at the moment, celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or Mother’s Day with this authentic at home Korean BBQ experience. Make sure you book early for Mother’s Day to avoid disappointment! This is available as a pick up service only at their Hastings location.
