September holiday programme:
SHE'LL BE RIGHT MATE! A classic kiwi holiday break
Slap on your sunscreen, slip on your jandals or gumboots and head on
down to your local library for an hour of fun, the kiwi way. Join
Anita Cumming for some great stories, some great fun, and some fine
fare. Win a prize for the best kiwiana outfit! Dress-up optional.
Suitable for primary school aged children. Spaces limited. Book your
place now to avoid disappointment. Our turn is at 2.00pm on Friday 28
September. All are welcome.
Library visits Warrington School
In September, we will be at Warrington School on the 12th and 26th
from 2pm till 3pm, while we are there primarily for the school, other
library members are also welcome at that time.
Poetry Book project
On the 'Poetry Day' held on July 27, the children of Waitati and
Warrington schools wrote some marvellous poems. They were collated
into a poetry curtain which now hangs at the entrance to the
children's corner of the library. When you're in the library, be sure
to spend some time reading and admiring their work. We were so
impressed by the high standard that we thought it would be a good idea
to collect the poems into a book. We would also like to include the
poems of any other local people of any age who would like to
contribute. Some library staff members are keen, and we hope some
school staff members will be equally enthusiastic. Bring us your best
poetic works! We'd like to make three copies of the book, one to be
held at each of the schools and one at the library for borrowing.
This beautiful banner needs to be finished. Kate is hoping to contact
those of you who have already done work on it, asking whether you'd
like to give it some more of your time and skill. But even if you have
not been one of the workers so far, and if you enjoy needlework,
painting, and would like to be involved, leave your name and contact
details at the library so that Kate can contact you.
Warrington Children's Book Club
This enthusiastic group will be meeting to talk about the books
they've been reading and to enjoy the activities that Helen has
prepared, on Tuesday, Sept 18.
As usual, we have our stories for little ones in the library every
Friday at 10.30. On every second Friday Heinke tells stories for older
children in the hall committee room. This month she will be there on
the 14th and 28th at 4pm. All are welcome.
Artist of the Month
This month we are featuring paintings by Carla Bennett. At the moment
we have a darkly atmospheric sea-scape which you will be able to
admire as you have your library books issued. Carla's paintings are
We still have work by Liz Abbott and Vicki Patten-Burrow on display,
so you haven't missed out on seeing that.
We are still taking names for Vicki's workshop on making beautiful
beaded angels for your Christmas tree. Don't miss out.
