Summer Reading Challenge extended to Saturday 6 February
The Summer Reading Challenge has been extended to Saturday 6 February for you all to have a chance at the lucky dip box. Bring your bookmarks back and see what you can win.
New year brings the regular activities plus new ones back to our calendars. Everything is listed under the events section of the library Facebook page which can be added to your calendar or you can visit the library website What’s On page and print out the page. Remember this does get updated regularly.
The year kicks off with Preschool Storytime and Baby bounce returning next Wednesday at 10.30am.
Reminder that this year I am introducing a Junior Book Club for kids in years 4, 5 and 6 once a month on a Wednesday at 5pm. The club is for all types of readers.
Once a month we will meet to
discuss books that you are reading
encourage you to select books that you normally wouldn’t choose
encourage you to select books that you think are above your reading level
recommend/swap books amongst the group
and most importantly have fun
Please come and help me give the club a name.
In 2021 I am also offering those who want to create a Book Club an option to access book kits containing 10 copies of a single title. The guidelines and registration form is now available at the library. Titles that are available for Clubs only is available at https://grenfellpubliclibrary.org.au/book-clubs/ This list is currently growing.
The Cinema is returning on Saturday 13 February with the Australian movie Rams. Doors will open at 7.45pm for an 8pm start. Seats must be prebooked via the Library as no walk-ins allowed on the night. Seats are limited so book in early. Seats are booking up fast so get in now before you miss out.
The free online author talks are back for 2021. Starting with an interesting talk covering Greek Australian Milkbars and Cafes: Past and Present on Tuesday 9 and then later in the month there is a free talk with the author of the new book The funny thing about Norman Freeman.
Story Box Library now available to be accessed in Library
Some people would have noticed the new TV that has been installed in the kids’ section of the library. We have hooked up the Story Box Library for you to utilise while in the library. Just ask next time you are visiting.
