The Autumn school holidays will see a range of activities for children at Bellingen Libraries. Easter and Autumn are the themes of the school holiday art and craft activities and children will be able to design and decorate their own creations.
”Undertaking arts and craft is great for child development and helps them to practice important skills such as coordination, fine motor skills and understanding shapes and colours”, said Shire Librarian, Jill Haynes.
In addition to the regular art and craft activities these holidays Bellingen Library will also feature the keenly awaited annual ANZAC display facilitated by Kevin and Moira Franklin. A highlight this year will be a mannequin wearing an Australian military nurses uniform from the conflict in Afghanistan. Throughout the day Kevin will be on hand to share his encyclopaedic knowledge of military history and tell stories of the memorabilia on display. The display will be open from 10am to 3.30pm on Thursday 18th April at Bellingen Library.
