FOGL Street Stall

This Friday the Friends of Grenfell Library are hosting the street stall outside IGA between 9am and 3pm. Please support them and have the discussion about joining the group in their fundraising efforts over the year.

FOGL has their next meeting in the Hub on Tuesday 23 March at 11am. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Easter Colouring-in competition for Adults only

Calling out to all the Adult colouring-in people. This Easter the library is holding a colouring-in competition. Entries are to be collected from the Library and returned by 4pm on Tuesday 6 April for judging. The prizes have been kindly sponsored by The Tin Cupboard. So, grab an entry or two and your colouring-in equipment and get colouring.

The next Saturday night movie is a family movie

The movie will be The war with Grandpa starring Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman, Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour. This is rated PG. Synopsis: Peter and his grandpa used to be very close, but when Grandpa Jack moves in with the family, Peter is forced to give up his most prized possession: his bedroom. Peter will stop at nothing to get his room back, scheming with friends to devise a series of pranks to drive him out. However, grandpa doesn’t give up easily, and it turns into an all-out war between the two. Seats must be prebooked via the Library.

Second-hand toy sale

A second-hand toy sale is running now. Yes I am putting more toys out for you to borrow as well. This sale will enable me to update the collection and see properly what we have. So please support the sale to support the library.

Free online Author talks

The next free talk is with author Samuel Johnson talking about his new book Dear Mum on Thursday 25 Mar at 6.30pm. Bookings need to be made through Eventbrite. Further details can be found on the events section of the library Facebook page.
