Tawa Library is celebrating Spring Into Tawa on Saturday 8th September with several events.
First up is a special storytime on Hairy Maclary. It’s Hairy Maclary’s birthday in September, so join us at the library at 10.30am to hear some of Lynley Dodd’s stories read aloud. It’s tongue-twisting fun for children, and children-at-heart.
People from Tawa College Adult Education are also visiting Tawa Library for Spring Into Tawa. From 10am – 12.00pm there will be demonstrations on flax-weaving, wood-carving, patchwork and felt-making, and at 12pm there will be performances by ukulele and Irish whistle experts.
Also, don’t forget to visit the Wellington City Council stall in the main road outside the library.
Spring into Tawa is on September 8th from 9am – 12.30pm at Tawa Plaza and the Main Road shops.
The annual Storylines Family Festival Day is on soon!
The Wellington Free Family Day gives children (and adults!) a chance to meet their literary heroes – authors, illustrators, storytellers or book characters.
Wellington Libraries will have a stall there (come grab some freebies from us), and Stuart Pedley (one of our star librarians) will be reading stories at 11am and 1pm. Come and visit us and say HI!
Sunday August 19 2012 between 10am-3pm at the Michael Fowler Centre.
