Library Lines: Tuesday, 28 August 2018

We have three jam packed ‘weeks’ to look forward to in September at the library.

On Monday, 3 September, during Adult Learners Week, Cameron McFarlane of Royal Life Saving will give a presentation on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques. There are two presentations during the day; 9.30am and 2.30pm. Each presentation will take approximately one hour, and comes complete with manikins to practise on, information and a fun quiz. Please ring the library on (02) 6740 2190 if you wish to attend either of these free sessions.

The CPR instruction sessions will be followed by the usual Brain Training at the Library, where people can exercise their minds doing fun activities such as join the dots (fine motor skills), spot the objects (pattern recognition), trivia questions (general knowledge), and how many words (word association, vocabulary).

Gunnedah Shire Library was one of the first libraries in NSW to attain its eSmart library accreditation, and on 5 September, during eSmart Libraries Week, an after school activity held for children aged between eight and twelve years will focus on the internet and staying safe online. Places are limited for Junior Brain Games, so if you wish your child to attend, please ring the library to see if there is a place available.

It’s also Child Protection Week from 2 to 8 September. The library will have a face out display of books pertaining to children safety – these books are available to be checked out.

Fans of The Very cranky bear by Nick Bland will be delighted that the library has acquired more bear books! We now have The very itchy bear, The very hungry bear, The very brave bear, and The very noisy bear – great fun books for children and the young at heart.

See you soon at the library!
