Have a whale of a time at the Library

This Wednesday, September 30 at 2.30pm until 4pm, children between five and 12 years old are encouraged to come down to the library and join in the fun as we explore the world of whales. 

Down in the deepest oceans, under ice floes or cruising the New South Wales coast, whales are found all around the world and have even been known to play inside Sydney Harbour! 

With whale-themed games, stories and Orca model craft, this informative and inspiring activity session will be lots of fun. 

The cost is $2 and includes all materials, so book your children in for Whale Watching on 6845 2156.


This autobiography by Iranian comedian, Omid Djalili, has been lauded as "perilously funny" by Colin Firth and contains hilariously captioned pictures of the comic from his childhood in Britain up to the present. 

As a stand-up comedian he has been called a "natural born storyteller" and has tickled more than a few famous funny bones. 

He has appeared on his own BBC television program The Omid Djalili Show as well as acting in big budget movies such as The Mummy and Gladiator with Russell Crowe. 

Djalili's autobiography promises to deliver the laughs while describing a colourful life lived with vitality and the optimism that the title suggests. 

Blood and Dust

If you love supernatural action and gore, Blood and Dust by Jason Nahrung is the newest in the vampire literature genre with an Australian twist. 

Aussie average guy, Kevin the mechanic, is just minding his own business when a hoard of attractive, bloodthirsty miscreants thunder into town. 

Suddenly his routine of fixing cars and pretending to watch movies with his girlfriend, Meg, becomes torn apart as he is thrust into the middle of a conflict between nomadic bikers and coastal villains. 

This novel is not for the squeamish as it is quite graphic in places.

The Ultimate Spider-Man

Those unfamiliar with the complicated worlds of comic books may not know that Marvel Comics has created a whole new take on one of their best loved characters. 

In the Ultimate Universe the original Spider Man, Peter Parker, who was a socially awkward Caucasian kid before he received his spider powers, has died and his shoes are filled by Miles Morales from Brooklyn. 

Miles is part African-American, part Hispanic and brings a new energy and attitude to his role as New York's rooky superhero. 

Initially reluctant to be anything other than a normal kid, Peter Parker's demise pushes him to accept his new abilities and use them for the greater good. 

"Revelations" sees Miles get a girlfriend as well as trying to find out about his family while battling new villains left, right and centre.
