In keeping with the theme of Multicultural March, many of the library's new books are set in different countries of the world.
Included in the selection are The Wolf Hour by Sarah Myles, described as ‘a searing contemporary thriller … a family in crisis against the backdrop of war-torn Africa’; and Elevation, set in a small town in America, written by Stephen Kind, ‘one of the great storytellers of our time’.
The Orchardist’s Daughter by Karen Viggers is an uplifting story about friendship, resilience and finding courage to break free.
There’s plenty going on in the library – on Wednesday morning from 10am-12pm the Family History Group meets to research local and family history. If you’re new to historical research, members can get you started.
For children aged 8-12 years, Junior Brain Games at 3.30pm on Wednesday afternoon offers children the opportunity to stretch their minds with reading, drawing, comprehension, and puzzles such as join the dots, find the objects, mazes and word games. Bookings are essential on 6740 2190.
Children in need of help with reading can come to the library on Tuesday-Thursday afternoon to ‘borrow a senior’ so they can practise their skills. Bookings are essential on 6740 2190.
On Saturdays, come along to Knit and Natter, Colour and Chatter from 9.30am-12.30pm. Bring along a handicraft project and enjoy some fun, fellowship and laughter.
