The libraries have been a 'stable' of activity this week as children have been in making hobby horses. Next week we invite all of them to come along to our hobby horsing competition days. There will be an obstacle course for them to race through with their horses, as well as an arena to show off their best moves. Registrations are at 10.30am at the library on these days:
Te Aroha - Monday 8th October 10.30-11.30
Morrinsville - Tuesday 9th October 10.30-11.30
Matamata - Wednesday 10th October 10.30-11.30
Kia ora, book-lovers!
Our next meeting will be held at Te Aroha Library, 4pm on Friday October 5th, when we’ll be discussing ‘Diary-themed’ reading. You can raid either the fiction or non-fiction shelves for this one – and to make things even easier for you, at Te Aroha Library we have a little list of possible titles! Having said that, there are heaps of possibilities in all three libraries that you can find with a little shelf-pottering, or simply enter ‘diary’ as a search term in the online catalogue.
This promises to be a really interesting theme. Have fun with it!

September is the month to Bee Aware and this year the focus is on bee health.
We will have local bee expert, James Sainsbury at Morrinsville Library on Saturday, 1st September from 10.30-11.30am for family-friendly bee activities. 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.
Our libraries also stock a wide array of books to help budding beekeepers, which you are welcome to borrow with a valid library card. Click here to search our catalogue.
Book Group is on tomorrow at Te Aroha library at 4pm. We are venturing out of the fiction pond and into the non-fiction sea. Specially, you are invited to dip into into the following sections: The 300's, 500's and 800's. The 300's encompassess such subjects as politics, true crime, military, law and relationships. The 500's are a wonderful melange or natural history, geology, maths and science, while the 800's are the go-to section for all things literary - poetry, drama, author biographies and useful writing guides.
Dive right in and see what you come up with! See you tomorrow!
