After the snow and rain comes the sun and Spring! A time for celebration, books and events. During Literacy and Numeracy Week we are launching the Ten Minutes A Day Program encouraging parents and carers to read to children. We will be congratulating local illustrator Freya Blackwood on her recent success in the Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards during her talk at Orange City Library on Wednesday 2nd September at 4pm. This month our Pageturners Book Discussion group hosts Mitchell Librarian Richard Neville to talk about the judging of the Miles Franklin Literary Awards on Thursday 10th September at 5.30pm. Our Library on the Go classes for seniors returns and then there’s the Ageing Well Expo on 23 September. So lots happening and we look forward to seeing you.
What is the Poppy Project?
Inspired by the Victorian 5000 Poppies initiative, CWL staff and families started creating poppies some months ago. A few grew into a field and we decided to ask the community to help us make a poppy for every serviceman and woman from Orange and surrounding districts. Want to help? Download your Poppy Pack, hand make one or more knitted, crocheted, sewn or felted poppies and drop in to the library.
