Li­brary craft adds sparkle

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
