SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES

The holiday activities held over the April School Holidays have been a great success, with lots of children enjoying the afternoon sessions. Big and little trout were created in Waste to Art craft sessions. Library Crafty kids drew fish with very individual personalities  and transformed Council Minutes, CDs, cheese pods and bubble wrap  into the Oberon Dam, for an entry for Oberon's Waste to Art Competition. Other children made themselves necklaces and earing, cooked ANZAC biscuits and worked on computer tips.

NEW TITLES

SEARCHING FOR GRACE KELLY by M.G. Callahan

The focus of this book is not the famed Princess of Monaco but it is a captivating novel presenting a glamourous picture of New York in the 1950s. A trio of friends Laura, Dolly and Vivian live at New York’s Barbizon Hotel and make the storyline engaging and believable. This book captures the glamour of a nostalgic age with intriguing lifestyles, settings and social standards of the era.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins

To everyone else in this train carriage I must look normal; I’m doing exactly what they do: commuting to work, making appointments, ticking things off lists. Just goes to show…… This is a gripping, unsettling and enthralling thriller. The book is full of secrets – who can you trust; the alcoholic, the liar or the cheat? This is a gripping psychological thriller soon to be a movie.

LONE STAR by Paullina Simons

Paullina Simons is one of the most endearing writers. Her newest novel transverses the European continent, speckled with romantic cities. This is an unforgettable love story between a college-bound young woman and a traveling troubadour on his way to war -  a moving, compelling novel of love lost and found. Great reading for an autumn weekend.
