Library craft adds sparkle
THERE aren’t many places you can find glittered-up dinosaurs.
But then again, there aren’t too many places quite like Childers Library.
Despite coming under fire from a reader who expressed concern about the number of non-fiction books in the library, it has been business as usual for Childers branch librarian Denise Rapkins.
Mrs Rapkins was in the thick of the action as about 15 primary school-aged children hooked into the morning’s activities.
On this occasion it was all about arts and crafts, with paper hearts and dinosaurs on the receiving end of sparkly makeovers.
“And what are the rules for the glue?” Mrs Rapkins asked the keen children.
“Don’t wipe it on our shirts,” came the mostly correct answer from the son of a parent relieved they wouldn’t have to clean up too much afterwards.
Mrs Rapkins explained the library ran programs like these during every school holiday.
She said the youngsters tended to enjoy the fun, with “lots of glitter and glue” giving them plenty to do.
