School Holiday Activity - I SPY

Louise  and Rohan Wythes enjoyed searching for hidden items in the glass I SPY display at the Orange City Library.

It is part of the ‘Summer Reading Club’ activities which will be taking place at the Library over the school holidays.  Remember to pick up your Summer Reading Club pack next time you call in!

photo of Caroline helping Val and Ruth at the Tech Savvy Seniors class today. There were so many attendees that Michael was run off his feet. Tablets were brought along by some of the students today which proved challenging. Ruth learnt about tabs and the picture folder on hers. Another student learnt about social media . Two of our elderly gents shut down and rebooted the PC successfully a number of times, also managing to find their tabs and searches with little assistance. Another gent found out about passwords, security and choices of devices to suit his needs. Regards Caroline Caroline Eisenhauer Branch Librarian Cowra Library

Cowra Library Staff are ready to supply customers with summer reading materials. Come in to the cool Library and dip into the pool filled with adventure stories, OR check out the digital media display offering music CDs, DVDs and audio books all with a Christmas or Summer theme.

Today we played carols to set the scene and I heard customers humming in (and out) of tune . The kids loved singing out loud! Their favourite was “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth “. The disc comes with the book which Maryanne read to them today.

Come in and pick up you Summer Reading Club pack.  This year’s theme is Adventure!
