Spotlight: Programs and Events
Don't forget to come along to the library and give yourself enough time to look at the stunning Panorama Project booklets which are on display until Tuesday, May 4. These little booklets were decorated by people throughout the North West region, including 60 from Gunnedah.
Marvel at the artwork and ingenuity that has gone into creating these little masterpieces, and perhaps be inspired to start recording your own memoirs using art, photography or any other medium.
The hobbies and interests collection has everything to get you started with your record keeping.
There are books on drawing, painting in various mediums, paper and fabric crafts and lots of other topics to pique your interest. Ask the library staff for help picking a book right for you.
Plenty of new books have been added to the collection during the last week, across all genres of fiction, non-fiction and children's titles.
Sean Aiken has written 'The One-Week Job Project: 1 Man, 1 Year, 52 Jobs'. This was his answer to the question: what should I do with my life? It's an amusing, insightful and sad account of the many occupations Sean tried, from chiropractor to storekeeper, to cancer fundraiser and mayor.
It doesn't have to be read from cover to cover, but can be picked up, and each few pages of that week's occupation read independently. Interspersed with his job struggles are his mother's battle with breast cancer - an interesting dip-into book.
For children, 'The Secret Library of Hummingbird House' by Julianne Negri has been short-listed for the Children's Book of the Year award. Young Hattie is trying to make sense of her life - her parents have spilt up, and the beautiful Hummingbird House next door is going to be demolished. How can she get her life back in order? With a bit of magic, a mysterious friend, and a lost treasure, of course! A great read for children, and even adults who love libraries.
'Kitchen Table Memories: Shared Stories from Australian Writers' is another great dip-into book. The chapters, written by different authors, can be read as stand alone sections. Australian authors share their memories, and recipes, of their kitchen table - a great read that will have you going back to your own kitchen table reminiscences.
