Caringbah Happenings: March 2007

Sydney Harbour Bridge DisplayIn order to play our part in celebrating the Sydney Harbour Bridge's 75th Birthday celebrations, we have a great Sydney Harbour Bridge display at the moment along with some of the library's best books on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I walked the bridge last Sunday on the open day. Even though I have walked along it before when I looked straight up after reaching the middle of the bridge I was amazed as to how big it is!

The HSC lending resources collection at Caringbah is proving very popular and we have noticed a high turnover of items. If you're doing the HSC in 2007 ask us about the many print and electronic HSC resources that we have.

Just last week we have had a new staff member join the Caringbah team. Welcome Matt! I am sure that all our customers will appreciate Matt's friendly demeanour and excellent customer service.

Rhymetime has just started at Caringbah library. Rhymetime is a storytime session for babies up to 18 months of age. Rhymetime sessions typically consist of simple and poplular rhymes like twinkle twinkle little star and songs that involve hand actions (like open, shut them) and a couple of simple board book stories. Our Rhymetime sessions always have the same opening and closing songs. Caringbah has rhymetime every Thursday at 11am. Of course our popular storytimes are still on every Tuesday morning at 10:30am.

Still talking about children's activities, the Easter holidays are approaching fast and at Caringbah we are holding our Pirate Fun activities on Tuesday the 10th of April- that's the Tuesday after Easter- at 2pm. Speaking of Easter, don't forget we will be closing on Good Friday 6 April and reopening on Tuesday 10 April, so grab your Easter reading material and avoid the rush!

Finally, did you know that Caringbah also has a DVD collection? Ask us if we have your favourite movie/tv show/documentary on DVD! Here are just a few of our new DVDs in order to whet your appetite: An inconvenient truth, Snakes on a plane, and The devil wears prada.

Have a happy and safe Easter - and don't eat too much chocolate!
