Library Lines: Tuesday, 23 April, 2019

School holidays are now in full swing, and children are having a great time at the library, taking part in the storytelling in the morning for the younger children, and handicrafts for older children.

The younger children have storytelling and a simple handicraft from 10.30 am to 11.00 am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning, and the older children come in on the same days at 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm to enjoy Crafty Creations – and the theme for the holidays is Superheroes! Come along and enjoy string art, mask making, decorate paper bags, make desk organisers, and more. There’s a charge of 3$ per children for the older children, and a limit of ten children per session, so please ring the library on 67402190 to book a place.

Plenty of new books have been added to the shelves during the last week.

Amongst the new books are Stories for boys who dare to be different: true tales of amazing boys who changed the world without killing dragons by ben Brooks. This book presents bite sized biographies of famous boys/men with cartoon illustrations and information spanning a double page. Interesting to pick up and dip into at any point – you don’t have to start at the beginning and read to the end!

Also for beginning readers and investigators is My book of rocks and minerals: things to find, collect and treasure. Beautifully illustrated and containing information boxes on such fascinating things as Glow in the dark rocks, Living gems, and How a pearl is made. Again, a book to pick up and dip into.

Everyone will be fascinated by Infomaniac: become an expert in an hour by Stuart Derrick & Charlotte Goddard. There are sections on Inventions, Modern technology, How the universe works, Wheels, The future, and so on, with plenty of little snippets of information to keep the reader engaged.

See you soon at the library!
