Half way through Pink up Gunnedah and the library still has plenty of pink prizes to the won! Just borrow a book from our 50 Shades of Pink display, check it out, and you'll see at once if you can select a prize from our pink prize basket!
It's great fun and there are books in all genres, including westerns and science fiction books that have pink cover!
There's also plenty of nonfiction, including the perfect book for summer, Cookies & Cream: Hundreds of Ways to Make the Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich - easy directions and delicious photos! There's also Sausages filled with mouthwatering recipes if you want to have a go at making your own sausages for that weekend BBQ.
If you need to engage in some exercise after your feast, try The book of Pilates: a guide to improving body tone, flexibility and strength.
Food Healing - fruit - vegetables - spices: daily recommendations for a healthy diet, and The Doctor's Kitchen: Eat to beat illness: 80 simple tasty recipes to improve your health and wellbeing and both filled with useful information and plenty of photos.
School's back now, and it's the last term, so if your child needs some additional help with reading, consider booking them into our Bookends Literacy Assist program. You can book a 20 minute session during which your child can select a book from the library, and read it to a senior, who will offer encouragement and assistance.
Bookings are essential for this program so please ring the library at 6740 2190 to book a session for your child. The program runs Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays afternoons from 3pm onwards.
Children in the Bookends program also become members of 1000 Books After School, which encourages children to keep reading and strive for milestone certificates.
Another fun after school activity for children is Junior Brain Games which runs for an hour each Wednesday afternoon from 3.30pm. Children enjoy stories with questions and answers, and activities such as join the dots, find the objects, word games, break the codes, mazes, and spot the difference.
There are places in this program, so if you would like your child to participate, please ring the library staff on 67402190 to book a place!
