Summer Read Review


Summer Read review – Feel Good Hit of the Year – Liam Pieper

 

A book to confront and inspire your inner hippy, leaving the lingering question: just where is the dividing line between a free spirited life and a wasted one?

 

This is a bitingly witty and self-deprecating memoir of an unconventional life lived in the suburbs of Melbourne and the bars and drug-dens of the world. It contains tales of the decaying architecture and fading flower-power of Labassa, teenage home work and drug deals, a mix of the unconventional and the illegal in parenting strategies, the gently amusing, the violent and, inevitably, the tragic. Liam Pieper has produced a review of his life which is honest and wise. You might find yourself wishing you had shared some of these experiences, or grateful that you have not! Patrick

"Frozen" Storytime

A special "Frozen" Storytime was enjoyed by children at the Frankston Library. Many of the children dressed up as their favourite princess or “Frozen” character and they were entertained with “Frozen” stories, songs, dancing and colouring in.

Before the Internet, librarians would 'answer everything' — and still do...

















Before Google there was — that paragon of accuracy and calm — the librarian. The New York Public Library recently came upon a box of questions posed to the library from the 1940s to the '80s — a time capsule from an era when humans consulted other humans for answers to their daily questions and conundrums.
