Plenty of new books have been added to the shelves at the Gunnedah Shire Library this week.
Among the non-fiction titles are Living with Chrohn's Disease: Turning Adversity into Opportunities by Nichola Hamilton.
The book covers diet, both conventional and holistic medicine, work/life balance and includes tips for carers, families and loved ones. There is also a list of Australian resources at the back of the book.
Another non-fiction title is In Your Face: the insider's guide to truly transformative makeup and skincare by Bernadette Fisers. The book has plenty of information about the composition of skin care products and contains plenty of photos and easy to follow directions to get the best make up results for your occasion and skin type.
Readers of thrillers and mystery novels will love the latest books by James Patterson and James O Born Lost, and David Baldacci's A Minute to Midnight. The clock is ticking in both novels, for the city of Miami in James Patterson's novel, and for Special Agent Pine in Baldacci's latest.
Want to try a new author? Chris Petit, described as "one of Britain's most visionary writers" has penned a novel set in Berlin at the end of World War II. A Morgen and Schlegel thriller, the book is described as one you won't easily be able to put it aside.
Don't forget that the library has plenty of books, and also programs, for younger readers.
For very young children, there's Toddler Time at 10.30am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning where the children enjoy stories and a simple handicraft. There's no need to book, just turn up and enjoy.
Older children can get reading assistance by joining Bookends Literacy Assist, which is an after-school program running from 3pm-5pm each Tuesday and Thursday and 3pm-4.30pm on Friday.
Children can 'borrow' a senior for a twenty-minute block, and the seniors will give help and encouragement with reading. This program is free, but bookings are essential so we can arrange a senior for your child at your preferred time.
Just ring the library on 6740 2190 or come in to chat to the staff.
See you soon at the library.
