We are aiming to have our Code Club up and running at all branches this year. It will run for one hour a week after school and is aimed at children aged 9-13. You can bring your own devices, or use one of our Chromebooks.
We would like to start these Clubs in Term 2 2020, but are in need of volunteers who can run these clubs (either senior students or adults).
Eyes on the prize!
It sounds like you had a great meeting last Friday, discussing a vast range of celebrity-related tomes. Pavarotti, Wallis Simpson, Graham Norton and even the last woman hanged in Australasia, all had their part to play!
The next get-together is arranged for Friday April 3rd, here at Te Aroha Library at 4pm, and the topic is 'Award-winners'.
You can search for these on our online catalogue by looking to the top left of the home page where you'll see several options: Childrens Book Awards, Ockham winners, etc. Click on one of these, and it'll take you through to a list of winners in different categories, and from there you can check if we have copies in our local libraries.
Another way of searching is to type in 'award winners' in the main search bar, and see what comes up, rather like a literary lucky-dip.
However you choose to pick your book, it's bound to be an interesting meeting!
All the best
The team at Te Aroha Library
