Library Lines: Tuesday, 18 June 2019

Plenty of new books have been added to the stocks this week, including some large print titles.

Remember, check the Large Print section for your favourite authors, as I no longer double up with titles – the books are purchased either in normal print – trade paperback which is the larger paperback format – or Large print. So there are plenty of titles in the large print collection that won’t be in the normal print section for you to chase up!

New titles include A family recipe by Veronica Henry – a heartwarming story of someone dealing with the empty nest syndrome, complete with some favourite recipes for you to try. There’s also Whistle in the dark a mystery novel by Emma Healey that will keep you guessing.

There’s also A place with heart which could be the library!!, but is set in Western Australia, and written by ‘bestselling Australian author Jennie Jones – a combination mystery/romance novel. The woman from Saint Germain by J. R. Lonie is set in Europe in 2914 ‘Two strangers from different worlds. Only war could bring them together.’

There’s also plenty happening in the library this week, with Toddler time three times a week from 10.30 am onwards on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, Junior brain Games for children aged eight to 12 years on Wednesday afternoon at 3.30 pm, and Bookends Literacy Assist from 3.00 to 5.00 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Older people have also been catered for – the library hosts Knit and Natter, Colour and Chatter on Saturday mornings from 9.30 onwards. Come on in, enjoy a game, a chat, a cuppa, or a colouring in session with like-minded people – This is a programme for both adults and children – all are welcome at the library! On Monday morning at 10.30am and in the afternoon at 3.30 pm you can also come in for an hour of brain training – memory games, join the dots, find the objects, mazes, word games, and so on. It’s fast, it’s fun and it’s free!

See you soon!
