Books and more

Call me a nerd but I do love our local library.  The boys love playing in the kid's area and finding new books to read.  You can also pick up lots of information about what's happening out this way.

Speaking of which, the Yarra Plenty Regional Library itself is hosting the screen reads Booklovers Festival from 18 - 29 July where you're invited to escape the winter chill and compare the book to the movie.  Books covered will include Romulus, My Father, Animal Kingdom and Tomorrow, When The War Began.  Refreshments are provided for these evening events and you do need to book at www.yprl.vic.gov.au or phone the relevant library.

Ivanhoe Library is also holding an Antique, Heirloom and Fashion Roadshow on Sunday 24 July in partnership with Banyule City council from 2 - 4 pm.  You can bring along a family heirloom for a free appraisal from Dawn Davis of Eaglemont Antiques.  Dawn will also talk about antiques and preservation and Ann Dixon from Bygone Days will talk about 1920s-1980s fashion.  Devonshire tea will be served and the event will be held at Banyule Arts Space.  Bookings are required on 9490 4222.
