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.
Week 2 of the School holidays
We are into week 2 of the school holidays. There is one kids’ movie left that will be held within the library, but bookings must be made prior to the sessions as there limited seats due to COVID-19 restrictions. Reminder that all children aged 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
The movie is this Friday afternoon at 1.45pm for a 2pm start and will be Samsam. It is rated G and runs approximately 1 hour and 14 minutes.
If you are heading off on a road trip don’t forget that the library has lots of kids talking books in CD and Playaway formats. You can also preload your device with great kids eBooks and eAudiobooks from both BorrowBox and Indyreads.
