Free holiday fun at library

During January the Tatiara Library Services is hosting drop-in, self-guided school holiday sessions at the Bordertown Library.

These sessions will run every weekday during the month, except for public holidays, and include five fun, free, and different activities.

Colour by numbers, sticker mosaics, sticker mandalas, puzzles and games, and pony beads or Kumihimo (Japanese braid) DIY keyring sessions will be running through to the end of the school holidays.

Library manager, Hayley Bawden said the library wanted to have something available for people of all ages to come and access.

She explained, in previous summer holidays people would not show up to organised sessions, but were often disappointed when they came in another day and there was nothing planned.

Mrs Bawden said having casual drop in sessions ensured there would always be an activity available for library visitors, and participants could take their projects home to finish and not have commit to a certain timeframe.

Six-year-old Chase Brumfield from Bordertown enjoyed the sticker mandala session on Wednesday, January 5.

Chase completed two stickers, an owl and a branch for it to perch on, and he was very excited to get home and stick them together and find a home for them.

Chases mother, Katie Ciampa said the school holiday programs were great and she had already been to a few with Chase and they planned to go to more through the month.

The activity table is set up near the DVD section.
