Thanks to everyone who has written a letter to the library saying why they love their library during February, Library Lovers Month!
Receiving your feedback has been important and informative, and where possible, we will try to act on your suggestions. If you haven’t already written a “I love my library because …”” letter with suggestions, you still have a couple of days to come into the library and write us a letter.
Don’t forget to visit us during Multicultural March. There will be a display of European and other countries costume dolls, displays of books set in different countries, and the library will be awash with the colour of flags of many nations.
Junior Brain Game (every Wednesday afternoon at 3.30pm) participants can enjoy such interactive stories as The Eureka Stew and Cooking Stone Soup.
Plenty of new books have been added to the library shelves including:
The Sons – “a well-written and nerve-wracking thriller” written by Anton Svensson; Lisi Harrison’s The Dirty Book Club is set in “a small beach town” in California; and The Last Train, “a gripping historical mystery”, moves between past and present, Scotland and Australia; That Girl by Kate Kerrigan is set in London during the 1960s; and White Gum Creek is of course set in Australia; while The City of Brass is a fantasy novel set in Egypt and in the imagination.
Non-fiction titles include My First Book of World Flags which clearly illustrates that some flags are indeed great works of art! John Cann, with Jimmy Thomson has written The Last Snake Man – “the remarkable true-life story of an Aussie legend and a century of snake shows” and The Cambridge Companion to Australian Art - a book that covers everything from rock art to modern day paintings – with plenty of coloured illustrations.
See you soon at the library!
