Board Game Nights for Teens and Adults
We are excited to announce two new monthly events we are running for teens and adults. The next to occur is our Adults gaming night. These will be running on the first Thursday of the month. These events will alternate in theme between speed gaming sessions and casual gaming sessions. The first session will run on Thursday the 6th of August, and will be a speed gaming night.

A reading challenge for everyone!
Winter Reading is back. Running from July 1 to July 31, all you need to do to enter is read 4 books and tell us about them. Come and pick up a log book from any desk in the library, fill it out and drop it back to us before Sunday 9 August. If you are an avid reader you can enter more than once. Each completed log will get you into the prize draw. All completed log books receive a Library Voucher when handed in and will go into a draw for a $200 Whitcoulls voucher. You can read any books you like, and for younger children, having a book read to you counts.

As a child, MacDonald had always wanted to become a falconer – she read all the classic books, learnt all the ancient terminology. And later, as she got older, she got involved in falconry, and made some life-long friends. When her father dies suddenly, MacDonald’s grief is all-consuming. Not really knowing how to deal with it, she becomes obsessed with the idea of training a goshawk. And so she buys Mabel, “cold, calculating, nervy and paranoid, - a sharp-eyed, deadly predator with murder in her heart”. Not your usual family pet then.
