Welcome to 2014; we have events suitable for all age groups planned for February.
Our story times will now take place on Thursday afternoons, 2:00-2:30pm. Have fun with your child, and enjoy half an hour of stories and rhymes, both old and new. Suitable for pre-school children and their care-givers.
The Summer Reading Programme prize-giving is on Saturday 8 February, 12-1pm. All children who have participated in the programme and brought back their booklets will receive a prize, and there will be live entertainment.
Our next Blueskin Book Share will be held on Friday 28 February at 10:30am. Join us for a chat over morning tea about what you are currently reading.
