Kid’s colouring-in competition

I have now launched an ANZAC Day colouring-in competition for the kids. Drop on into the library and pick up an entry or two. You can colour in the images using anything you like but you need to write your name and number on the back using a pencil. Entries will close at 4pm on Wednesday 21 April.
