Library Lines: Tuesday, 31 July 2018

There are plenty of new things happening in the library in August!

Knit and Natter, Colour and Chatter is a new programme that will be launched during Local Government Week, on Saturday, 4 August, at 10.00am in the library. The programme invites people of all ages to come into the library and enjoy some creative and social time doing their handicrafts or relaxing with some colouring in.

Handcrafters can work on their own projects or for items for charity, and they will have to bring their own supplies; the library will supply colouring in sheets and community art books, as well as colouring in pencils, crayons and texta colours. Tea and coffee will be available.

Olwyn Jones from the Embroiders’ Guild of Gunnedah will be on hand at the launch to teach the joys of knitting to participants. No bookings are required, it’s free, and all are welcome – just drop in for as long as you like from 3.30am to 12.30pm.

On the 1 August, the library will be launching its new eResources platform: RBdigital. Library members can download the app and have access to hundreds of magazine titles and books in either electronic or audio format for multiple devices at their fingertip. You will be able to have books and magazines wherever you go. To have access to the eResources you need to be a member of the library, so make sure you come along and join up. Ask the library staff for help in setting up your account and start accessing this digital library with its great range of titles.

We all know that the farmers are suffering due to the drought conditions. There is a collection box in the library for donated items – non-perishable foods and household necessities – to distribute to our farmers in need. The donation drive will run until 10 August. So if you would like to contribute to people in need, please check the list of requirements and drop your contribution into the box!

See you soon at the library!
