Everyone is gearing up for the excitement of Christmas and the library is included in the end of year preparations.
Borrowers please note the library will be shut from 12 noon on December 21, and will re-open on Monday, January 7 at 9.30am.
To tide you over this long shut down, you are able to borrow extra items, and can also have them for longer. If you wish to return books during the shutdown, the after-hours book return is to the left of the library doors. Just slide your books down the chute and they will be attended to.
The Bookends Literacy Assist program has finished for the year, and will re-commence again on Tuesday, February 5.
Bookends is an after-school activity running in the library every Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm to 5pm, and on Friday from 3pm to 4pm. Children wanting some one-on-one help with their reading can “book” a senior for 20-minute blocks to receive encouragement and help with their reading skills.
If your child is already in the program, you will need to re-book their place, or if you want your child to be a part of the program, please ring the library staff on 6740 2190 to make a booking.
Brain training @ the Library is also having a break and will resume on January 7. Brain training is a free and fun-filled hour of mental stimulation such as join the dots, find the objects, mazes, word games, general knowledge quiz, and so on.
There are two sessions each Monday, one at 10.30am and the afternoon session at 3.30pm. There are vacant places for each time slot, so if you wish to book a place, please ring 6740 2190.
Meanwhile, library work is proceeding as usual with many new books added to the shelves, including the latest Peter FitzSimons book, Monash’s Masterpiece: The Battle of Le Hamel and the 93 Minutes that Changed the World. The book includes quotes, maps, diagrams and photos.
There’s also the latest thriller by John Sandford, Holy Ghost, and Arcadia set in Tasmania, by Di Morrissey, one of Australia’s favourite authors.
See you soon at the library!
