Children embrace their creative side

By Cobram Courier

Cobram library hosted an arts and crafts morning on Thursday with 20 children embracing their creative side.

The group, which included community members as well as children from Trikki Kidz Cobram, had a blast creating and decorating 3-D dragons, unicorns and ladybugs.

Cobram library co-ordinator Jessica Anderson said the event was a great example of how libraries were changing and becoming more than just a place for reading books.

‘‘We want to bring people to the library and show this is is a multi-functional space,’’ she said.

‘‘It is a place which isn’t as quiet as libraries once were.

‘‘We want people to use all of our resources.’’

Cobram library hosts free activities for the community, such as tomorrow’s Lego building challenge from 10.30am to 11.30am.

All Goulburn Valley libraries are running a joint rainbow serpent school holiday activity.

‘‘We have our really long rainbow serpent,’’ Ms Anderson said.

‘‘People can come in whenever the library is open in the school holidays and colour in a new section to add to the serpent.

‘‘The rainbow serpent is a part of celebrating NAIDOC week.’’
