Winter Festival @ Your Library

Shoalhaven libraries invite you to get on board the activities that are being held over the winter season.

The Adult Winter Reading Club has kicked off and will run until the end of August. The reading club invites you to submit a short review of a book you have read. All the reviews will go into a draw to win prizes. There will be 3 draws during the program and forms are available at the Nowra Library.

 To compliment the Winter Reading Club, the library will also hold a scarf knitting competition that will see the entries donated to a local charity. Anyone can enter their home made scarves which will be displayed until the end  of August when they will be judged and prizes awarded.                                                                   

This is a chance for you to let your imagination take hold and dream up some wonderful colours and patterns for your entry. There will also be a communal scarf knitting project in the library where everyone is invited to come in and spend some time knitting a section of the library scarf.

 As usual, the library will also host its famous Knit in that will take place on the 7th of August and feature the expert craftswomen from Nowra’s Wrap with Love group. Get out of the cold and join us from 10am for morning tea and bring your knitting along to help create squares for the homeless.
