Spring story time 2013 001

Cowra Library has sprung into Spring with its’ monthly storytime. Fiona crafted a tree resplendent in cherry blossoms (gorgeous). For the next few months Storytimers  and visitors to the Library can help our tree grow flowers, leaves and possibly more branches! Check out books reflecting themes of spring, colour, Japanese culture and Summer. Our ongoing displays are stacked full of gardening books, magazines and dvds.

The next Storytime on Thursday 3rd October is a special school holiday one –  lookout for  spiders and creepie crawlies to make and place under or around the tree (thank you Maryanne). Its’ open to all ages and she has a selection of topical books.

And a reminder the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival is on at the Japanese Gardens on the 28th September 2013.   The Festival  has many exciting cultural experiences to demonstrate the traditional Japanese way of life. Sakura Matsuri is a much loved event in the Cowra cultural calendar. It is a time when the natural beauty of spring and the simple elegance of centuries-old traditional Japanese culture combine in the unique Australian setting of the Cowra Japanese Garden – and you are invited to enjoy the result.
