It is now spring and Grow, the National Year of Reading theme for September, is appropriate for this time of year when there is so much new growth. At Ulladulla Library the monthly display is featuring books on gardening and the display is constantly being refilled with books on organic life, pest control and plant identification.
The idea of growing is continued with the permanent images of a child reading under a tree over the junior section and also a tree over the local history section encouraging people to “climb your family tree”.
Another area where the staff see growth is the children who regularly attend the library with today being a preschool story-time, where “Feathers for Phoebe” (the book from last year’s National Simultaneous Storytime) is going to be read.
Chess Club had their party last Thursday, and long-time players have been growing in skill with new members joining and learning from those who have been here longer.
The recent “Get Reading” campaign was taken up with enthusiasm. Booklets about the 50 Books you must read were flying off the shelf, offering readers a chance to grow the selection of authors they enjoy.
