Tuesday, February 6 saw the launch of the library’s Red Rapped Reads promotion, which will be running throughout February to celebrate Library Lovers’ Month.
A whole shelf has been wrapped with red ribbon with big red bows and the shelves filled with books with red covers. It includes fiction titles of all genres – romance, mystery, thrillers, westerns, large print, non-fiction and more.
To add to the fun, several of the books have been tagged and those lucky enough to borrow one can select a box of chocolates to take home to enjoy with their books.
So come on in and broaden your reading range by choosing a book with a red cover from the special shelf.
Plenty of new books have been added to the shelves during the last week.
Among the new titles are Gregory’s 2019 Street Directory Sydney and Blue Mountains, which includes new streets and development, and over 13,215 facilities. There’s also a map of the Sydney trains network, information about taxis, and a map of the Sydney ferries network.
For those interested in Australian wildlife, there’s a new set of books, Australia’s Most Dangerous Spiders, Australia’s Most Dangerous Snakes, and Australia’s Most Freaky Weird and Wonderful Creatures. Plenty of full-colour detailed photos and information boxes, including how to deal with venomous snake or spider bites.
Then there’s Australia’s Most Extreme: The biggest, fastest, toughest smartest creatures, and Australia’s most deadly. The book includes detailed photos, distribution of the animals, and also fact filled information boxes. Both sets have been published by Australian Geographic.
Remember, if you come to the library to return books, and the library is shut, you can use the after-hours chute located to the left of the library door. Just push the flap open and slide the books through, and the library staff will return them.
See you soon at the library.
