After the Covid 19 shut down, the library has started its popular Junior Brain Games after-school activity again. This programme runs every Wednesday afternoon from 3.30pm to 4.30pm and includes such activities as join the dots, find the objects, mazes, word games, memory activity, reading and comprehension, and sometimes some handicrafts such as origami.
The program is aimed at children 8 to 12 years and targets different brain activities, such as creativity, number skills, word association, pattern recognition, vocabulary, and memory. It's a fun, free programme, but bookings are essential as we can only accept 10 children. Please ring the library on 67402190 to secure a place for your child!
There's a similar program for adults: Brain Training @ the Library programme, which takes place twice on Monday morning at 10.30am to 11.30am and from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Participants enjoy socialising and doing activities such as spot the difference, mazes, word games, trivia questions and a memory game. It's all great fun and free, so please call 6740 2190 or come into the library to book a place.
Lots of new books have been added to the shelves during the last week. Adam Hamdy has written 'Black 13' and it's been described as 'The action never flags. It. Never. Ever. Stops ... a worthy successor to Ludlum and Cussler'.
Scott Pearce, ex M16 agent, thinks it's time to burn the espionage rule book. I've just read a couple of pages, and it does live up to its hype!
Another thriller is by Anna Downes 'The safe place' A review states 'Creepy and addictive ... a slick modern thriller with the perfect amount of old-fashioned twists.'
Many large print books have also been catalogued and are ready to be read including The secret of Orchard Cottage' by Alex Brown and 'The bookshop on Rosemary Lane' by Ellen Berry.
See you soon at the library!
