Lego takes over library as kids get creative

LEGO has long been a children's favourite and continues to impress in an era where electronic gadgets rule. The Gympie Library recently held a Lego-building competition to keep little hands busy over the school holidays. The winners were:

  • Younger children's section, Jaxon Raittila.
  • Mid-primary section, Alvey Pinchin.
  • Older children's section, Kael and Sydney Ruthven.

 Summer reading THE Summer Reading Club is in full swing at the Gympie regional libraries.  The club is welcoming new members up until the end of the summer holidays, so it is not too late to register your name at any of the libraries in the Gympie region.  There is a great opportunity to win and iPad or an iPod in this national reading club, so keep reading and completing the reading logs for lucky dip rewards.  Come along to the Summer Reading Club Party at Gympie Library on Friday, January 23 from 10.30am-noon for lots of fun, food and presentation of prizes for our local entrants in the Summer Reading club.  Winners of the iPad and iPod will be announced for each state in mid-February.
