It’s AgQuip week this week, but it’s business as usual at the Library!

All the Library programmes – Toddler Time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10:30am will be running as usual, with the theme of ‘Chickens’. Come along and listen to stories about chickens getting up to various pranks and the children can do a simple handicraft afterwards. Junior Brain Games is also held on Wednesday afternoon at 3:30pm and is an excellent afterschool activity, with book reading and discussion, followed by brain stimulating activities such as spot the difference; join the dots; mazes; and words games. There are some places available in this programme – just come along with your child to book them in or ring the Library on (02) 6740 2190 for more information.

The Family History Group also meets at the Library on Friday morning from 10:00am onwards. If you are interested in investigating your family tree, or the history of the town, come along and meet some like-minded people who help you get started on your search for your roots.

Plenty of new books have been added to the Library collection during the last week.

Amongst the new titles are: True Stories of Great Escapes (Volumes One and Two) - these are described as ‘the real-life epics of men and women whose password was courage and who gambled everything for freedom – or death’.

In a lighter vein, there’s Fresh and Tasty Wok Cooking with easy directions and plenty of colourful photos.
For toddlers and beginner readers, there are two books by Trace Moroney - When I’m Feeling Loved and When I’m Feeling Kind. The books also contain background notes for parents to help them explain the concepts to children.

Among the new talking books is one by a favourite Australian author Monica McInerney, Family Baggage, which takes the reader from Australia to England. It’s in the MP3 format, however, if you want to try this book but don’t have an MP3 player, you can borrow one from the Library.

See you soon at the Library!
