Never-before seen Adults’ Program - Mungindi and Moree Community Library
A never- before seen adult program kicks off this week at the Mungindi and Moree Community Library; the program is marketed towards adults and senior citizens of Mungindi and Moree, encouraging local residents to take advantage of the community space and participate in free social activities.
The program includes three activities, brain training, crafts, and movie screenings which will take place on week days across the two Libraries.
Big Sky Libraries Manager Sally Walters has provided some insight into the development of the program and what will be involved with the brain training and craft activities.
“Libraries are a wonderful community space and I think it’s incredibly important for these facilities to be well-utilised by groups across our community. Although we offer a comprehensive children’s program, I have been interested in developing an adults’ program for quite some time,” Mrs Walters explained.
“The Brain Training will run for 10 weeks in Moree and 6 weeks in Mungindi and is designed to improve mental function, memory, and concentration. This program is a great one; cognitive training is important to continue throughout life to ensure our memory stays sharp and our brain continues to function at its full capacity.
“The craft sessions are designed to be fun and social; at the Moree Community Library, material will be provided to participants to make items like blankets for local organisations while the program at the Mungindi Library will be more independent and members will be encouraged to bring in their own craft projects along, have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.”
The table below outlines the when the activities are happening at each Library:
The adults’ program will start today (Monday 3 February 2020) and will run until the beginning of April 2020. The program aims to encourage more community members to utilise these great community spaces and become members of the Library.
