Grandparents Day @ Lithgow Library

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 15 Oct 2019
Every year we celebrate the contributions of grandparents and other older members of our families and community on Grandparents Day. This year we will be holding a special day at the library to celebrate on October 28th.

‘The ways that grandparents, as well as aunts, uncles, friends and other relatives, contribute to our families are endless. Sometimes it’s good to pause and really appreciate the special relationships we share” says Mayor Ray Thompson. “Grandparents Day at the library will be a chance to bring together the younger and older members of our community, for the grandparents to share some of their stories and skills and for the young ones to share their enthusiasm and energy.”

The Library invites all pre-schoolers, their parents, grandparents, and friends to come along to join in our Storytime session, which includes stories, activities and a special morning tea.

The activity segment of the day will be provided by and supervised by the Lithgow Area Women’s Shed and will give young and old a chance to share skills and make something together. Women’s Shed president Leanne Hopkins said “one of the reasons the women’s shed was set up was to make sure women have the opportunity to gain skills they might not have previously had, in the same way we want to help children to experience the joy of making and to not be afraid of using tools. Many of our members are finding the experience of learning to use tools is a way of connecting with their own grandchildren”.

The day is completely free and will start at 10:30am and will include face painting, a special Grandparent’s Storytime, a wood working activity and a delicious morning tea. For more information and to let us know, for catering, that you are coming please contact the Lithgow Library.

Please contact Lithgow Library on 6352 9100 if you need any further information.
