LIBRARY FUN FOR THE HOLIDAYS
CHILDREN around the region have made the most of the wintry weather by heading indoors for some school holiday fun.
Harvey Library welcomed its newest members when it hatched 14 baby chickens early last week.
The chicks will stay at the library for the remainder of the holidays.
Children got creative with cupcakes at Australind Library on Thursday at a special cake decorating workshop.
“It was a great turn out and a fantastic winter holiday activity,” librarian Laine Brown said.
“Everyone put a lot of effort into their decorating, and took great pride in their work.”
