Biographies to discuss

Just one week away until the next Book Club meeting at Te Aroha Library.  The theme this month is ‘Biographies’. Remember these are scattered throughout the non-fiction section, according to subject areas, e g sport, music, royals etc. Fortunately they all wear a tell-tale ‘Biography’ sticker on their spines. If it’s all too daunting, do come and ask one of your friendly librarians for a spot of assistance – it’s what we’re here for :)

Enjoy your month of entering into someone else’s life!

See you at 4pm on Friday 1st March at the Te Aroha Library.

Finished all your puzzles and wanting to challenge yourself with something different?

Bored of all your board games?Puzzle Pieces

Why not come along to Morrinsville Library on Saturday 2nd Feb from 10am-midday and exchange your old ones for new.

A community-led idea, this will be a good chance to meet some fellow puzzle and board game enthusiasts, clear out your old stash or gain something new.

Any puzzles/board games not taken at the end of the day will be kept to either donate to a second-hand shop, or kept for the next puzzle exchange.
