LIBRARY LINES for week beginning 3 September 2018

I would like to send out a huge thank you to Erica Moore, Alicia Hunter and Verdel Maclean who kindly manned the library while I was on leave for three weeks. It was lovely to return from holidays to find the library well cared for. Thank you, ladies.

Preschool storytime is on again today. So, come on down for stories and craft at 10.30am.

FOGL will be hosting bi-monthly talks and morning tea. The first talk will be Wednesday 12 September at 10.30am with the discussion surrounding the recent NSW Budget cuts. So please join us to hear how these changes will affect our Library and meet the FOGL team.

As most of you would have noticed I have been updating and reorganising the Adult nonfiction, Junior nonfiction and the reference collection into one collection. We now have the one collection and I have been changing this into a bookshop style genre collection. This week’s new nonfiction titles reflect the new and updated literature titles. They include 1984 by George Orwell, The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, The three musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, The color purple by Alice Walker, The war of the worlds, by H. G. Wells and Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally. Other nonfiction titles this week include The ptsd survival guide for teens by Sheela Raja, Only 1 pot and How renewable energy works.

Some great new kids’ books are now ready for loan and they include Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy, Small space by Sarah Epstein, Game time by Anh Do, Insects, A shoal of fish, The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, Amelia Westlake by Erin Gough, The burning maze by Rick Riordan, P is for Pearl by Eliza Henry Jones and The adventures of Beekle: the unimaginary friend by Dan Santat.

This week’s fiction titles include The lovers by Catherine Rey, The tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, The love that I have by James Moloney, The naturalist’s daughter by Tea Cooper, After the blues by Kathy Lette, The secrets at ocean’s edge by Kali Napier, Hangman by Jack Heath, The whole bright year by Debra Oswald, Faithful by Alice Hoffman and The Zanzibar wife by Deborah Rodriguez.
