YEAR ONE READING CLUB

The Year One Reading Club ends on Monday the 31st October! 
The club is designed to help students improve their reading skills and develop their imaginations through literature. Children still have plenty of time to receive their stickers and rewards. By making regular visits to the library, reading becomes an enjoyable habit for children and helps build on the literacy skills developed in kindergarten.

SKIN DEEP AUTHOR TALK

Castle Hill Library | Tuesday 13 September 6.30pm-7.30pm | $8.20pp
Join author Phillipa McGuinness as she talks about her new book Skin Deep: the Inside Story of Our Outer Selves. It's a book about skin. The strange wonderfulness of our bodily covering. What happens to it when something goes wrong. How the world responds to imperfection and difference. It’s about how skin makes us who we are. Skin Deep explores beauty, ageing, imperfection, health and illness, all of which are closely related to skin, and interrogates whiteness, both historically, structurally and through current notions of white fragility and victimhood.
