Fun with books

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Fun and learn­ing will be held in South Waikato li­braries as they kick off with their Easter Hol­i­day Pro­grammes.

Toko­roa and Ti­rau li­brary will host the book treks pro­gramme and pro­vide a range of ac­tiv­i­ties and books to read as well as prizes.

Chil­dren will read three books and then fill in an ac­tiv­ity book. Once they have com­pleted the ac­tiv­i­ties, they will re­ceive a re­ward from ‘‘the lit­tle trea­sure box’’.

This is the sec­ond year the li­braries have run this pro­gramme. Toko­roa li­brary team leader Bet­tina Kin­chant said chil­dren en­joyed the ac­tiv­i­ties last year.

‘‘It’s good fun, I’ve had lots of good com­ments,’’ she said.

Chil­dren can col­lect the ac­tiv­i­ties any time un­til May 2.

At the Pu­taruru li­brary, crafts and sto­ries are the main at­trac­tion. The li­brary will host two ses­sions of story telling and mak­ing crafts. Pu­taruru li­brary team leader Pamela Reed said num­bers in the last two years made the pro­gramme ‘‘worth­while’’.
