Library Lines: Tuesday, 19 December, 2017

School holidays is upon us, and if you’re looking for something for your children to do in those long, hot hours, look no further than the Library.

During the holidays, we have three storytelling and handicraft activities for the younger children up to seven years old on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 10.30am. Before Christmas, the theme for each day is of course Christmas!

During January the theme is Game On! This theme links in with the Summer Reading Club, an Australia-wide initiative to help children hone their reading skills over the holidays. Ask the Library for the free activity bags for youngsters and those with computers can sign in online and be in the running for some fabulous prizes.

Older children are catered for in the afternoons at 3.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with the same themes, and they also have free Summer Reading Club activity bags that can be collected from the Library. As well as the activity bags, the Library has also organised a fun ‘Find and Name the Icons Project’ that takes the children all over the Library!

Storytelling and handicrafts will be held at Curlewis Library each Monday afternoon from 1.00pm until 3.00pm. Come along and enjoy and don’t forget to pick up your free Summer Reading Club activity bags!

If you are looking for some summer reading options, the Library has just received all the latest bestsellers ready for the Christmas and New Year break!

There are two new James Patterson novels, Haunted and The People v. Alex Cross; the latest mystery by Harlan Coben, Don’t Let Go; John Grisham’s The Rooster Bar; David Baldacci’s End Game; and Jeffrey’s Tell Tale - a book of short stories. Not to mention the new ‘intellectual cliffhanger’ by Dan Brown - Origin - starring master mystery solver Robert Langdon.

These are only a few of the books that have been added to the collection and are ready to be checked out.

See you soon at the Library!
