There's still some time for the young, and the young at heart, to come into the library and test their memory of favourite and well known, and some not so well known!, fairy tales!
Hidden in plain view around our Fairy Tale Castle are the clues to twenty five well known tales by Grimm, Anderson and Aesop. Grab a form, have a good look at the castle, and fill in as many answers as you can, and be in the running for some great local prizes - movie passes, book vouchers, and coffee and cake vouchers.
So come along to the library and join in this fun and free competition - Fairy Tale February ends soon!
Plenty of new books have been added to the collection this week, including many Large Print books, and also Talking Books.
In the case of the Large Print titles, remember that it's the only copy on the shelves - there's no normal print copy, so readers should check out the Large Print shelves and perhaps get new titles by their favourite authors.
People who like reading Jodi Picoult will enjoy The Mothers by Genevieve Gannon, a book about "Two couples, one baby, an unimaginable choice". It's described as 'both heart-breaking and heart-warming".
Also by an Australian author is The Lost Summers of Driftwood a story of lost loves, rekindled passions, tragedy and betrayal' by Vanessa McCausland. Readers of thrillers will enjoy James Patterson's latest novel Blind Side, a Michael Bennett novel.
People preferring fact to fiction can borrow, amongst many other titles added to the collection, Eucalyptus: health, cleaning, laundry, planting: practical everyday guidance by Lesley Dobson. As well as describing different types of trees, the book has simple recipes and handy hints, with lots of photos. There's also Living with Allergies: practical tips for all the family by Emma Amoscato, and The End to Pain: how nutrition and diet can fight chronic inflammatory disease by Jacqueline Lagace.
See you soon at the library!
