October is Mental Health Month and the City of Parramatta Libraries have created a page of resources, tips, events and contacts to help support the mental health of you and your loved ones. Why not take a look at our lists of books for all ages and reserve/borrow one today, a sample of some of the titles from the list are shown below. We even have a special downloadable booklet filled with colouring pages for the beginner and the more advanced and mental health tip posters to print at home.
If you enjoyed reading kids books that we recommended earlier you may want to hear from Antonia, again talking about pic books.
Parramatta Library was very proud to host best selling author Paige Toon at Parramatta Town Hall on Tuesday 30th April. Paige was in Sydney to promote her new book If You Could Go Anywhere and have a chat with one of our wonderful librarians all whilst enjoying a sumptuous high tea. A lot of fun was had by all and many books sold – we were very grateful to Penguin Random House for giving us the opportunity to host an author talk with Paige who was a dynamic and engaging speaker. Her many fans brought or bought books for her to sign and commented how much they enjoyed the event and meeting one of their favourite authors. Paige was happy to answer our favourite question – Why do you love libraries?[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y89eFIKMfU&w=560&h=315]
There are ready answers in the libraries and we call them reference, such as encyclopedia and dictionaries etc. What’s in the libraries are printed books that you can see. However, there are more easy access and even interactive resources available electronically. Krupali, one of our librarians, is going to tell you more about this collection.
Parramatta Library, in association with Penguin Random House Australia, is hosting an in Conversation author talk with bestselling author Paige Toon.
Paige will be touring Australia for the very first time to talk about her new book – If you could go anywhere.
Enjoy our special Girls Night Out High Tea with (sneaky) Bubbles! Why not have a meet and greet with Paige to have your books signed and pick up her newest release from our on sited bookseller.
Don’t miss your chance with Paige before she goes back to the UK!
