Who is Greta Thunberg? Where does my plastic toothbrush end up? Why do some women wear hijab? What is consent? What's the difference between a paddle crab and a hermit crab? Our wide and ever growing range of children's books addresses many of the questions children, both young and old, might be asking today. Check out these shiny new children's books which delve into some important topics with a light touch.
It's the last month of summer and there are plenty of reasons to visit the library. This month we will wrap up the Nelson Summer Reading Challenge. Time to read those last few chapters, cross off the last few books on your Bingo card and complete your check-ins. Save the date! On 14 February - Library Lovers' Day - we will be celebrating our reading challenges, handing out prizes and listening to some great music from Gitano Swing and the Anna, Juliet & Lissa Trio. In February we also return to our regular term time programmes. We hope to see you at a small time, story time or maybe a robotics session!
It's the silly season! To-do lists, over-flowing shopping carts, queues and traffic. We all love this time of year for the abundance of sunshine (hmm...), family get-togethers and hopefully some days to kick back with a good book. We're excited about some new releases that have just hit our shelves that address the expansive and troubling topic of climate change. If you're after some summer reads to engage your mind check out some of our new books - there are options for the whole family too, as Greta and the Giants has just been published, a beautifully illustrated picture book that opens the conversation of climate change for youngsters with big hearts and minds.
