AS part of NSW Seniors Week, an information morning will be held at the Library on Senior’s legal rights, advocacy and educational services available to our older citizens.
The presentation is being held on Wednesday 11 April from 10.30am for Morning Tea followed by the discussion at 11am.
The service is free, but bookings are preferred on 4997 1265.
For the younger generation there’s a treat in store at the Library during the April School Holidays.
Librarians Chris Shelly and Carol Johnson are holding an Anzac Day Craft session on Wednesday 18 April from 2.30 to 3.30pm.
‘’With the approval of the RSL we’ve developed various modules to educate the children about Anzac Day and the Anzacs and the lifestyles of the people both here at home and serving overseas during that era” Chris Shelly said.
“It will cover, sending a care parcel to a World War One serviceman, making red poppies and helping children develop little letters as if they were sending them to someone overseas.”
“It will help children get a feeling for what might have been useful during that era, like sending some soap, any food from home such as Anzac cookies,” Chris said.
“The Idea is that the children will have some empathy for what it would have been like to have nothing over there and receive something from home.”
The activity is suitable for children aged 5 to 11 years of age.
It’s a free afternoon, but again bookings are essential.
