Kids’ clubs and programs aplenty at Moree Community Library

BIG Sky’s Little Readers and Book Blasters are a part of the extensive Children and Young People programs available at the Moree Community Library during the school term.

Big Sky’s Little Readers meet weekly for an hour with programs designed for Kindergarten to Year 2 students. 

Book Blasters meets on a fortnightly basis and is for children in Years 3-6.

Both clubs are fee-free and held during the school term, with the aim of promoting a lifelong love of literature and libraries. 

Participants have fun getting creative with stories, and of course, get to preview new books.

The programs are designed to involve even the most reluctant readers by engaging them in collaborative and problem-solving tasks, and learning through play.

Library outreach services officer Kristy Baker says that by creating a fun environment to read and discuss books and giving children the opportunity to think, reflect, and share their experiences makes book clubs rewarding activities for readers of all levels.

“Book club participation is about developing the love of stories and discussing a range of topics from the books,” Mrs Baker said. 

“It also provides a broader social impact, where kids from different schools and backgrounds get to know each other through their love of books and learning about what their Library has to offer.

“Children and young people programs are free, however parents and carers need to register their kids into the Big Sky’s Little Readers and Book Blasters programs,” she said

The Moree Community Library also runs a playgroup called Baby Bounce for toddlers two years and under as well as Storytime for pre-schoolers and Code Club for juniors aged eight years and over.

A great way to keep up to date with what’s happening at Big Sky Libraries is to subscribe to the Library’s eNews on the home page www.bsl.nsw.gov.au.

Parents and carers can also ask staff members to register their children by calling (02) 6757 3374 or by simply dropping into the Moree Community Library at 36 Balo Street, Moree (adjacent to Moree War Memorial Hall).
