Dads Are Special Every Day of the Year

We know Dads are special every day of the year, but show your appreciation for fathers and father figures on Sunday 1st September whether it’s chocolates, plants, a handmade card, remembering special times or sharing stories. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and here’s a photo of our Librarian Michael enjoying his Storytime reading of My Dad by Anthony Brown to captivated pre-schoolers this week.

Scones were the order of the day at our Knit-In Wrap with Love Charity Thank You Morning Tea with special guests ABC Radio’s Brooke Daniels, and Breastscreen’s Lisa Maxey. It was lovely so many of the volunteers were able to come along.

And the grand total is 195 completed rugs + 416  extra squares!!!! Fantastic effort everyone!!! And if you have a knitted square or rug – we are still collecting them. Congratulations to everyone involved in this year’s event.








Web of Deceit

Another Great Reading Hour Book

When paramedics Jane and Alex encounter a man refusing to get out of his crashed car, with bystanders saying he deliberately drove into a pole, it looks like a desperate cry for help. His frantic claim that someone is out to get him adds to their thinking that he is delusional.

Later that day he is found dead under a train in what might be a suicide, but Jane is no longer so sure: she remembers the terror in his eyes.

Detective Ella Marconi shares Jane’s doubts, which are only compounded when the case becomes increasingly tangled.   Just when she thinks she’s closing in on the right person, a shocking turn of events puts more people in danger and might just see the killer slip through her hands……

Thank you to our Reading Hour reader who rated this book 10 out of 10! Have you read anything great lately? Let us know.
