More than 260 books was read by 28 keen readers who participated in the summer school holiday reading program “Summer Reading Club – Heroes and Villains” at Two Wells Public Library this year.
Participants attended a special party at the library on Wednesday February 22, where District Council of Mallala councillor, Karen McColl, presented each person with an age-appropriate book for their efforts.
“Reading is one of life’s real pleasures,” Ms McColl said.
“It can be both entertaining and informative and you often have the opportunity to explore new places and life experiences.
“Well done to you all.”
Across the country more than 300,000 books were read over the summer, which is a lot of books!
Congratulations to Grace Highnett, Kayla Potter, Darcie, Chelsea, Maddison and Kaitlyn O’Brien, Jessica and Mitchell Nightingale, Gabriella Dimasi, Elyse, Eli, Eddison and Ethan Fechner, Kate, Sarah and Brian Wood, Emma and Chloe Sharpe, Alex Potter, Charley and Hamish Wildbore, Zac and Alex Tilley, Flynn Sheedy-Palethorpe, Noah and Dylan Henwood, and Caleb and Aaron MacMillian.
Meanwhile, the library’s popular school holiday program is coming up this month with a Geocaching workshop set to be held on Tuesday April 18 from 1.30pm to 2.30pm at the Two Wells Uniting Church.
This event will involve participants utilising computers and technology outdoors in a treasure hunt-type scenario following GPS coordinates to unearth a special “cache”.
On Wednesday April 26 from 1.30 pm to 3.30pm at the Two Wells Oval children will have a chance to enjoy the world of Bubble Soccer.
