Anyone is welcome to come along and participate, see what bees do in an observation hive, try on a beekeeper's veil, or learn about how bees help with pollination.

It's on this Friday, 24th August and so to celebrate, we are inviting you to our libraries for some DIY poetry.  We have all the building blocks you'll need to create your very own poem, whether it's book spine poetry, blackout poetry or using magnetic words to put together.

We'd love to see you in the library this week for you to Unleash the Power of Poetry.

September Book Club Meeting

Hello, book-lovers!

A good turn-out of you at our August Meeting, to discuss your various women authors. Nora Roberts is obviously flavour of the month, as we had two titles by her in the mix this time round: ‘The Liar’ and ‘Shelter in Place’. Both books were warmly recommended by those who read them.

With Spring just around the corner, the group is getting a little adventurous, venturing out of the Fiction pond and into the Non-Fiction sea.  Specifically, you are invited to dip into the following sections:  the 300s, 500s or 800s. 

So go ahead, dive right in and see what treasures you come up with!
Next meeting is Friday September 7th, 4pm at the Te Aroha Library.
