Circus skills

The HB Williams Memorial Library's circus-themed holiday programme was jam packed with fun activities and entertainment including ‘Juggle-Mania' this week.

Children made their own balls and learned some basic juggling skills from children's librarian and juggler Diego Pedrioli.

Requiring a great deal of hand-eye coordination, juggling also takes intense concentration said Mr Pedrioli.

The summer reading programme called The Great Reading Carnival has provided a fun-filled itinerary with highlights like Strong Man Stan who amazed the audience with feats of strength, balance and danger and Zappo the Magician.

A finale to acknowledge the older children who completed the reading programme will take place next Tuesday.
