20 Years in Fred's Footsteps Display
Check out this Fred Hollows display and discover what it would be like to view the world with cataracts. Twenty one years after Professor Fred Hollows passed away, Orange City Library is hosting a special touring display that celebrates the life and work of the late eye surgeon. It will be on display in the library from December 9, 2013 to January 7, 2014.
Professor Hollows’ widow, Gabi Hollows, hopes the exhibition will offer the public an opportunity to learn more about Fred’s dream of eradicating avoidable blindness and improving Indigenous health. It will be on display in the library from December 9, 2013 to January 7, 2014.
Welcome Freeda the Reader
Children at Storytime this week enjoyed meeting special guest – Freeda the Reader. They lined up to pat her flippers and stroke her soft fur. Storyteller Fiona introduced the giant platypus Freeda and talked to the children (carers and parents) about all the qualities that make her unique. Children were also able to guess her favourite hobbies correctly – can you? Yes – swimming and reading! Her wish is for all children to discover the joys of reading.
Freeda the Reader will be helping out with our Summer Reading Club activities during December and January – so when you see her, make sure you say hello.
