Have you checked out the children’s department lately?

We’re slowly bringing stuff back into the children’s department. If you’ve been in, in the last few weeks you may have noticed that the weekly riddle has returned! Correct answers could win a small prize. We have also brought back the monthly colouring contest (you can take these pages home and bring them back to be entered into a monthly draw to win a small prize!) and introduced a new “think outside the box” drawing station!

Coffee Filter Peony Take & Make Kits now available!

These come out looking quite realistic considering they are made from coffee filters! Coffee Filter Peony Take & Make Kits now available! Each kit contains most of the supplies needed to make at least 3 peonies. You will need a hot glue gun though. However, did you know we have hot glue gun kits? If you don’t have a hot glue gun and want to make one of our Take & Make Kits you can borrow a hot glue gun kit with your library card. Just return the glue gun, the container and any unused glue sticks!
