Boredom busting fun at libraries

Close-up . . . Studying how a robotic Spherobot works was fun for Ben Carr (11), on holiday in Milton from Geraldine.

If you are bored with sitting around home waiting for the sun to come or the schools to reopen, then the Clutha District Councils libraries have a few ideas up their sleeves on how to beat the boredom blues this holiday season.
A series of five boredom buster activity sessions have been held over the past month, and last week it was an indoor session at the Balclutha Library where children made arts and crafts. The library sessions varied between indoor and outdoor activities.
Over at the Milton Library last Thursday was another programme whereby they held a technology day full of fun games and prizes based around computing and logical thinking.
Clutha District Council Library’s digital programme co›ordinator Dalene Breytenbach said it was a great day at Milton, with 32 children and eight adults coming along to the Family Fun Tech Day.
‘‘We’ve held five of these fun days this month discovering technology in the regional libraries with the last one being held [January 28] in the Balclutha Library.
‘‘Everyone has had a lot of fun with lots of spot prizes donated by Warehouse Balclutha and Balclutha Bookshop.
‘‘We had great turnouts at sessions we held all over the district and everyone enjoyed the experiences,’’ she said.
