One Sleep to Go

All is quiet

 

All is quiet. The new furniture is in, staff are resting, books are back on the shelves and all is ready for the Forbes community. Only one more sleep to go before all is revealed inside Forbes Library. Doors open 10am Monday.

Children were treated to a Storytime performance of The Brothers Quibble by Orange High School Year 11 drama students. They were also thrilled the actors helped them to make their own crowns for craft. Thank you to all involved in this project. It was lots of fun.

Cowra librarian Maryanne performed the duties of chief reader and organised a crafty crown to be made for National Simultaneous Storytime. Pat the dog was involved as well. Many of the children were babies in prams and their siblings, so the story about a new baby brother was relevant to the group assembled. One mum, Donna, who has been coming to storytime since the nineties with her children said it was the first time she and her child actually heard the story and saw the pictures. This is her last child and last year because Sarah starts big school next year. It was quite an emotional moment. We are pleased everyone enjoyed the story of sibling rivalry.
