Celebrate Seniors Festival!
Join us to celebrate the Seniors Festival across MidCoast Libraries. We've got a exciting program of events to interest all seniors!

Celebrate Seniors Festival at MidCoast Libraries with this hands-on and informative workshop "Know Your Roots". Learn everything you need to know about researching your family history with the team from the Manning Wallamba Family History Society in this full-day workshop. Get to know all about and how to use the abundance of resources available through your library including websites, records, databases and much more. Lunch is included.
MUSIC BY THE BOOK
Celebrate Seniors Week at MidCoast Libraries with Music by the Book. Featuring "Music from the Shows" by Bob Berrigan and his band, and dancing from the Taree Rockers from Club Taree Rock n Roll social Dance Club, plus a delicious afternoon tea from the CWA Wingham.
All About Women Satellite
All About Women streams live to reach wherever you are!
Taree Library Sunday 5 March from 10.30 am until 1.00 pm
Start the morning with renowned Geena Davis in her talk, Women and Media. Sharing her insight into Hollywood and the global film industry, Geena will discuss how far we still need to travel before girls can see the variety of women they want to become in the films they watch, the shows they stream and the media they absorb every day.
Next, go backstage in an All About Women Satellite exclusive with Jessa Crispin to explore the ideas in her latest book, Why I Am Not A Feminist.
Then head back to the main event for the Nasty Women plan featuring Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Van Badham and Lindy West to explore the labels that are deployed to try to put women in their place. But what happens when women stop being afraid, and 'nasty woman' becomes a badge of honour?
DO YOU LOVE TO WATCH FILMS & THEN DISCUSS THEM?
Yes? Then you will love the beamafilm club at Taree Library where each month we screen one of the films from beamafilm - a free streaming service available for members of Manning Valley Libraries. Following the screening, we'll discuss the film and enjoy afternoon tea.
This month our feature film is The Irish Pub in celebration of St Patrick's Day and all things Irish! Screening Wednesday 15 March from 2.00 - 4.00 pm at Taree Library.
THE IRISH PUB is a celebration of the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically, the traditional Irish publicans who run them. The characters in this exceptionally endearing film all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that we gain an insight into the heart and soul of THE IRISH PUB.
