Tony & his books

Former teacher and librarian, Tony recently moved into the Arcare Knox community. Tony had one condition on his move into aged care- that his extensive book collection could come along with him.

On Tony’s first day at The Lodge, lifestyle assistant, Bec met with him to help move in and organise his book collection. The pair spent hours organising hundreds of Tony’s books into specific categories- the only way a true librarian knows how.

“Walking into Tony’s suite feels like you’ve walked straight into a library. He has a book on just about everything.” Bec said.

Tony, who is fluent in 7 languages, has a passion for learning, and is happily settled into his new home surrounded by all his books.
