We have plenty of activities happening in the library.

On Wednesday we have the Shop Bound deliveries – this is a library service for people who are in their businesses and unable to get to the library personally.

All you need to do is join up and have a chat to the library staff about your reading preferences, and a bag of books is then delivered right to your shop counter every two weeks.

This service is free, and if you or your staff are interested in taking part, just let us know by ringing 6740 2190 and one of the library staff will visit with the relevant forms and more details.

Also on Wednesday are Junior Brain Games, an after school program for primary-aged children.  Participants enjoy storytelling, book discussion and fun activities such as join the dots, spot the difference, find the objects, word games, etc. The activities are designed to assist with fine motor skills, number skills, reading and writing, creativity, and pattern recognition.

Places are limited for this program. Please contact the library on 6740 2190 to secure a place for your child or have them put on the waiting list.  

If you are interested in tracing your family tree, or researching the history of the area, you can come along to the Family History meeting at 10.30am on Friday morning.  If you’re just starting, the group will give you research hints, and the library also holds books to be borrowed and local history materials to be used in the library.

Plenty of new books have been added to the library stock this week.  Among the new titles are The Currency Lass, a novel by Tea Cooper, set in Australia, Dark Heart the latest Jed Walker thriller by James Phelan, City of Friends by Joanna Trollope, Pirate by Cliver Cullser and Robin Burchell, and the latest James Patterson - Humans, Bow Down.
