Library Lines: Tuesday, 14 August 2018

Ten people enjoyed a morning of fun and friendship at the launch of Knit and Natter, Colour and Chatter at the Gunnedah library on Saturday, 4 August during Local Government Week.

If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry; the program runs each Saturday from 9.30am until 12.30am and participants are welcome to attend during this period. Those who embroider, knit, crochet or do any fabric work will need to bring their own materials, but the library will provide crayons, colouring pencils and permanent markers as well as colouring in books and templates. Morning tea is available, booking is not required and best of all, it is FREE! Children are also welcome to attend.

Plenty of new books have been added to the library’s collection during the last week.

Amongst the new fiction titles are In the valley of blue gums by Australian author J. H. Fletcher. Then, ‘a true feast for the senses’ The little Italian bakery by Valentina Cebeni, with delicious recipes scattered amongst the prose of the story. Fans of Tom Clancy will enjoy this novel about Jack Ryan Jr written by Mike Waden Line of sight. The book is described as ‘a brilliantly constructed thriller that packs a punch like Semtex.

If you own or work in a shop and can’t make it to the library to borrow one of the books, ring up and ask to be added to the Shop Bound library service. You will just need to fill out an application form, tell the library staff your reading preferences and a bag of books will be delivered to your work location every two weeks. Once again, this Shop Bound library service is free of charge!
