Spring into September with spring cleaning, gardening, learning and doing something new!
And what better place to start doing something new than the library, where we have all the resources to help you learn, achieve and create.
In conjunction with the cultural precinct, the library is running a Spring into September writing competition for the young and the young at heart.
Let your imagination run free and write a story, short or long, a snippet of autobiography set in spring, a limerick, a poem or an essay. Pick up your entry form from the library and return by 5pm on September 18.
Winners will be announced at the Spring into September exhibition opening on September 25 at 1pm.
While you're in the library, why not pick up one of the Spring into Reading colouring-in competition blanks? There are three levels: seven years and under, eight to 12 years, and over 12 years.
Again, return to the library by 5pm on September 18, and winners will be announced at the opening launch of the exhibition.
Schools, community groups, hobbyists, and artists, professional or aspiring, can collect their Spring into September artist submission form at the library. Remember, any medium, not just painting, drawing or colouring in, is encouraged.
It's not a competition, just an exhibition, so get needles threaded for fabric work, scissors for paper crafts, and ideas buzzing.
Want some inspiration? Browse our library shelves in the hobbies and interests section. We have titles in all fields of arts and crafts, waiting to be borrowed.
Amongst the titles are: 'Making metal jewellery: how to stamp, forge, form and fold metal jewelry designs' by Jen Cushman, 'Wood pallet projects: cool and easy to make projects for the home and garden' by Chris Gleason, 'Make a dragon and other great Lego ideas' and 'Modern embroidery: 35 stylish and contemporary hand sewn designs' by Laura Strutt.
