Library Lines: Tuesday, 07 May 2019

There’s plenty happening in the library during May!

As well as the usual addition of new books to the shelves – we have recently purchased 100 current fiction and non-fiction books, as well as some Large print titles- we have all our regular programmes such as Brain Training @ the library, Toddler time three times a week, Junior Brain Games, Knit and Natter, Colour and Chatter, we also have a slew of extra events happening.

Things to look forward to include The Biggest Morning Tea, National Simultaneous Storytime, which features the entertaining Alpacas with Maracas. We will also have a 1,000 Books Before School certificate presentation for children who have reached their milestones in this early childhood literacy programme.

Beginning readers will enjoy some additions to the existing sets that we hold in the library. There’s Robert Irwin: Dinosaur hunter: the discovery written by Jack Wells. The book has large print, some illustrations, and some facts about Australian dinosaurs. There’s also the possibility to hop on line and ‘get a special message’.

Fans of Billie B will enjoy the new set of Billie B Mystery books. There’s four books in this set which focus on Billie B and her friends who have formed a special club to solve mysteries!

New mums will want to borrow the sequel to Up the duff (also held by the library!) which is Babies & Toddlers by Kaz Cooke. This book covers everything from new babies to birthdays – information is presented in an easy to read and informative way.

Time for a bit of romance? Try Maybe this time by Jill Mansell, described as ‘Romantic and brilliantly written … a feel-good gem’. Readers who enjoy historical fiction, or just a good book set in past times, will like The familiars by Stacey Halls. Set in England in early 1600, it’s a ‘beautiful tale of women and witchcraft and the fight against power … a delight from start to finish.’

And embracing other realms is The fork, the witch and the worm: tales from Alagaësia by Christopher Pailini, a collection of stories based on the Inheritance Cycle, which the library also holds.

See you soon at the library!
