School holidays are now in full swing, and the library has some fun activities for the children. As well as borrowing books, talking books, CDs or DVDs to take home to read, watch or listen to, they can come to the school holiday program Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon at 3.30pm and make various objects out of lollypop sticks, just contact the library on (02) 6740 2190 to book a place for your child or grandchild.
Younger children can enjoy storytelling and handicrafts in the mornings at 10.30am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and as the theme is Colour!, there’s plenty of scope for the imagination! Last week children created bright butterflies out of paper plates and cardboard rolls – what can they make this week?
The library has added plenty of new books to the shelves this week.
Among the titles are: The Surrogates by Louise Jensen, ‘A gripping psychological thriller with an incredible twist’; a new mystery novel by Camilla Lackberg is titled, The Girl in the Woods; while Australian bestselling author Fiona Lowe has written Birthright- ‘Three families, three claims, one fortune’.
For fans of nonfiction, 12 Strong: The declassified true story of the horse soldiers by Doug Stanton is described as being ‘the amazing book that inspired the movie’.
Younger readers can enjoy 5 minute tales: Dinosaur stories, while The Lullaby Collection, which ‘contains 4 music CDs’ might be useful to send babies to sleep!
Children going on a long train, plane or car trip might like to borrow an audio book that they can listen to while en route to their holiday destination. Many new titles have been added to the children’s and adults’ talking book collection.
See you soon at the library!
