Gilgandra Shire Library News - May 9, 2023


Inspired by the amazing fireworks at this year’s Gilgandra Show, our DFYM (Designs From Your Mind) LEGO® Club builders recreated the fireworks display. Many builders were enthusiastic about using motors to create fireworks that would spin, while others created colourful 3D displays of fireworks in the sky. All our incredible builds are on display in the library. DFYM is a fun program that once a week after school and is suitable for children aged five years and over. The number of participants per session is limited, so bookings are essential.

Tech Club

There was a mixture of LEGO® and technology last week at the library, as our participants learned how to ‘be computers and coders’ at Tech Club. After building mazes with bricks, the coders had to ‘program’ their figurine to move through it, giving positional and movement directions. The difficulty increased as the session progressed, with coders adding ‘repeat’ as well as ‘if…then…or’ instructions to make their code shorter and provide concise instructions. Tech Club is a fun, free program that runs once a week after school, and is suitable for children aged eight to 12 years.

Tech Savvy Seniors

The latest season of Tech Savvy Seniors began last week, thanks to Telstra and the NSW government. Once a week, throughout May, we’ll be helping people to master their phone or tablet. Point Blank Writers’ Group Point Blank Writers’ Group will meet soon. Point Blank Writers’ Group have a writing workshop at every meeting, and we enjoy sharing stories and a love of writing. New members are always welcome.

Baby Rhymetime

Did you know that reading aloud to babies helps with brain development and bonding? And that repetition of rhymes and singing supports language and literacy development? At Baby Rhymetime we sing, rhyme and read, and there is plenty of laughter and fun along the way. Baby Rhymetime is for babies and young toddlers and their carers, and bookings are essential as places are limited.
