Bye-bye Blurb it! Hello Facebook!

9 August 2011

You may have noticed the lack of recent posts on blurb it, ummm… recently.

Gold Coast Libraries is no longer updating blurb it, but you can still keep up with what we’re doing on our Facebook page. Like us, and stay up to date with everything bookish on the Gold Coast.
For upcoming events check out the Calendar of Events.
If you want more book reviews and recommendations, head over to our online book club – book coasters.

And, of course, if you want something a little less virtual, drop in to one of the Gold Coast Libraries for a book, magazine, DVD, CD, graphic novel… or just for a chat. We’d love to see you!

Arvo-a-rama

14 June 2010

Are you staring down the barrel of long, boring afternoons with nothing to do?

You should get out more.

And we know just the place……


That’s right – your local branch library!

Gold Coast libraries have a host of new afternoon activities for teens. Choose from:

  • Build your own website – make your own virtual space.
  • Re-boot – gaming, manga, web 2.0 and more.
  • Chill out and knit – learn to cross needles and whip that wool.
  • Speed Scrabble – no board, just fast, furious and fun.

Interested?
Click over to the latest online calendar of events and have a look at page 6 for all the details on “active arvos”. Or grab a copy of the booklet next time you’re visiting your local branch library. Drop in at a session – they’re running all through June, July and August at Elanora, Nerang, Robina and Southport Branch Libraries.

Almost Holidays!

3 December 2009

Not long now until the end of the school year, but have you thought about what you will be doing over the school holidays?  What about your younger brothers and sisters?  Want to know the perfect way to get them out from underneath your feet??

Take them to the library!!  I’m really, really not joking! 

This summer we have so much happening at the Gold Coast City Council Branch libraries, that it will be hard to choose what to do! 

For younger folk out there we have a Summer Reading Quest and all sorts of events and activities.  Come along to the Worm Squirm (where ability to touch worms is essential!) or Create your own storybook character!  The 6 – 12 year olds in your family will be glad you went!  Check here for the December to February Calendar of events – your guide to a fun-filled Summer!!

But what about you?  A little older than 12 but still wanting to get into the library fun?  There are plenty of things for you to!! For example, have you ever wanted to watch Sound of Music on a big screen?  Book in for December 17 at Robina Branch Library and you will be able to see it for FREE!!  Yep – FREE!! How about learning how to create Christmas Cards and gift boxes?  That is being held at Burleigh Waters Branch Library on 3rd of December – book in fast!!

So with a little bit of planning – you will have your whole holiday filled with lots of fun-filled activities and events… Just make sure that you book in to avoid disappointment!

What are you looking forward to over the school holidays?
