There will be plenty of fun to be had at the Deniliquin Library after it re-opens.January 1, 2013 4:54am
Sophie Manna was excited to sit on Santa’s knee at the pre-school story time Christmas party last month.
The Deniliquin Library is offering plenty to keep everyone busy this summer.
The fun started before the Christmas break with a host of parties, including one where children got to meet Santa himself.
Once the library re-opens following the Christmas and New Year break, more activities will be on offer.
Helping children, and parents, beat the ‘school’s out’ blues and boredom is the summer reading program.
You get your very own reading pack and incentives are offered along the way.
The program started on December 17, but it’s not too late to sign up. It runs through until February 1, and it’s a great time to get the children involved.
As well as getting enjoyment out of reading, there’s stickers, wrist bands, pencils and much more to be won by children who read a certain number of books.
Parents are encouraged to read with their kids.
Interested people can register by going to the library and putting their name down.
The library is also hosting ‘A Day in the Life of Deniliquin’ photography project, which will be available to view until January 10.
The project began in 1990 when 36 local photographers and community members took photographs that formed a snapshot of the Deniliquin community during a 24 hour period.
In 2001, 32 locals continued the project and in 2011 with Regional Arts Fund support, more than 4500 images were submitted.
It produced an insightful photographic snapshot of the Deniliquin region over the past 20 years.
