Scrapbooking for schoolkids
By NADINE FISHER
KIDS, get down to the Murwillumbah or Tweed library this week to participate in their first-ever after-school scrapbooking craft sessions.
The scrapbooking sessions, held as part of the statewide Celebrating Heritage at Your Library Week, is designed to encourage kids to have fun at their library and learn how to preserve their memories.
Tweed Area Librarian for Richmond-Tweed Library Services Jo-Anne Carmody said there would be two sessions - one at Murwillumbah today and one at Tweed tomorrow.
Ms Carmody said this would be the first time the library had held after-school craft sessions for the age group from eight and up.
"If they are successful we will look to do some more," she said.
"We're really trying to encourage kids to come in and have a bit of fun at their library and learn how to preserve their photos as well."
Ms Carmody said the workshops would start at 4pm both days and kids needed to bring along some photos of themselves, their families, friends, the place they live or perhaps some small drawings.
The sessions are free for kids aged eight and over. For inquiries or bookings phone (02) 6670 2427.
