Library Lines: Tuesday, 10 July 2018

If you’re looking to entertain your children these school holidays, look no further than the library’s school holiday programme.

There is storytelling and handicrafts for children up to seven years on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 10.30am to 11.00am. For the older children, there is a handicraft session on the same afternoon at 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Bookings are essential as there are limited spaces and a fee of $3 for the afternoon sessions, so you will need to book by ringing (02) 6740 2190 to secure a place for your child.

The library staff will be attending Curlewis Library on Monday 16 July 2018 from 10.00am until 3.00pm for story reading and handicrafts. This fun activity has a limit of ten children and a charge of $3, so don’t forget to ring and book in.

If you are taking a winter break and are going to be doing some rail or road travel, entertain yourself and your children by borrowing a talking book. There are two formats, MP3 and normal CDs, a great option to listen to while on the road.

New talking books added to the children’s collection include Goblins vs dwarves by Philip Reeve, read by David Thorpe. The seven CDs give you seven hours and 45 minutes of listening time.

Adult talking books new to the shelves include Black thunder by Max Brand, (7 hrs and 20 mins), Legacy by Australian author Tamara McKinley (15 hrs). In the MP3 format we have the latest thriller by Michael Robotham Say you’re sorry (12hrs 10 mins), and The wrong side of goodbye by Michael Connelly (12 hrs).

If you don’t have an MP3 player but want to take advantage of reading with your ears, the library also has players available for loan so you can enjoy this new format.

See you soon at the library!
