Craft Daft at Tarbolton Library

April 20, 2016

Over the school holidays Tarbolton Library had free craft activities available for local children to drop in and get creative. The children had a brilliant time and put lots of effort in to making their Easter chick boxes. We think they’ve done a great job and thought you might like to see some photographs of all their hard work. Well done everyone!

March 31, 2011

We’ve added some new children’s titles to our eReads Collection – just in time for the spring break! There some new story books, graphic novels, and eAudio books. Here’s some spring-themed titles just in…….


Hop –  the story of the Easter Bunny – he really wants to be a rock star instead.

Silverlicious – the story of a little girl who loses her sweet tooth, so sweeties don’t taste nice any more. Both the Easter Bunny and a Christmas elf try to help, but it’s the Tooth Fairy who finally shows her where sweetness can be found.

A Very Big Bunny – which tells the story of Amelia, a lonely bunny. The other bunnies won’t play with her because her feet are too long for hopscotch, and she is too big to seesaw with. Then a new bunny Susannah comes to school and they become great friends. This is a perfect book for every little bunny who worries about fitting in.
