Summer Reading Club!

This December the Library's Summer Reading Club starts again! Borrow books, fill out what you have read in you SRC log book and hand into library staff for a small book prize to get you started; each log book completed goes in the draw to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet!

Each time you hand in a log book you can choose a small science, technology, engineering, art or maths (STEAM) kit to take home and explore. Air-conditioned and comfortable, the library is a great place to come in and relax over the hot summer. New and exciting kids' books are arriving all the time.

Are your kids hooked on Ahn Do's Weirdo Series? Or how about Geronimo Stilton adventures?

From picture books, to chapter books and hundreds of fact and non-fiction books exploring topics from animals, space, sports and science there's plenty to fill the SRC log books throughout summer.

You can register your participation at the library December 1.

'Tanna'- In one of the last remaining traditional tribes in the South Pacific, a young girl, Wawa, falls in love with her chief's grandson, Dain. But when an inter-tribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed to another man as part of a peace deal. Determined to remain true to their hearts, Wawa and Dain run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors desperate to enforce tribal law. With their lives on the line, the star-crossed lovers must choose between their hearts and the peaceful future of the tribe. Filmed on location in Vanuatu, breathtaking in scope and naturalism, based on a true story and performed by the people of Yakel, Tanna is an exotic 'Romeo and Juliet'.

New Books

'Cults' by Nigel Cawthorne. Cults are a source of endless fascination. Their sinister secrets, strange rituals and shadowy hierarchies make for some of the most disturbing and shocking revelations in history. Most chilling of all is the fact that many followers forfeit all their independence in order to carry out the bidding of a mysterious master maniulator- and continue to defend their leader to this day. From Charles Manson, who instructed his followers to murder seven people, to Amy Shinrikyo, the Japanese doomsday cult that carried out deadly terror attacks. These cults and their leaders transfix us with their extreme ability to commit savage acts of cruelty and depravity in the name of a self- appointed higher power.
