Events and Programs Guide - Spring Edition
Libraries Events and Programs Guide Spring 2022

Spring is in the air and with it brings many opportunities to visit your library and take part in one or more activities and events. You could still find time to curl up with a good book, watch a streaming movie, listen to some music or audiobooks, or you might take the library with you when you are out and about - it is open 24/7.

We also have a range of technology to explore - 3D printers, virtual reality, recording equipment, robotics or you can just come to have some gaming fun.

Our latest VR for Seniors program has just landed - designed for seniors and people living with dementia or disability. Join us to enjoy some armchair travel, jump out of the plane (if you are really brave) or paddle in Thailand using specially designed virtual reality goggles.

We look forward to seeing you in the library.

Writers in Residence at Safety Bay Library: Rebecca Laffar-Smith
Book Cover: Spirit Talker by Rebecca Laffar-Smith

Join us at Safety Bay Library as we welcome young adult author Rebecca Laffar-Smith to talk about her latest book, Spirit Talker.

On the surface, Spirit Talker is about a young girl who sees ghosts. Beneath you will find a sympathetic look at real life mental illness, at the dangers of not having your voice heard and the importance of self-advocating with medical and mental health professionals or loved ones. Inspired by Rebecca's own lived experience, Spirit Talker was written to inspire, give hope, and save the lives of teens facing challenges today.

Safety Bay Library, Saturday 29 October, 10am-11am

This free event is for ages 14-25. Bookings are essential. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend and should also book a place.
