To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man’s touch – and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes.

Tänasest saavad meie väikesed lugejad ja loomulikult ka nende vanemad ning teised lapsemeelsed, teha sportlikke jooksuringe ümber Rapla keskraamatukogu ning lugeda läbi üks Muumide talvine seiklus. Algus on raamatukogu peaukse ees, kust leiad esimesed kaks lehte – lugemisretke tutvustuse ja raamatu esilehe. Sealt edasi tuleb sul joosta ümber raamatukogu ja otsida õigeid järjekorranumbreid. Nii saab joosta ja samal ajal raamatu läbi lugead. Paneme aga südamele, et ninapidi koos võivad ühe lehe juures olla vaid ühe leibkonna inimesed korraga. Kui sinu järgmine lugemisleht on parasjagu hõivatud, siis lihtsalt oota veidi, et eelmised lugejad saaksid eest ära minna. Toredat lugemist!
Selle nädala jooksul on raamatukogus toimunud jõuluhommikud lastele. Väikest päkapikumaad on külastanud lasteaialapsed ja koolilapsed. Raamatukogu päkapikud loevad erinevaid jõululugusid, laulame toredaid jõululaule ja teeme mõne ringmängugi. Lõpetuseks saab iga laps piparkoogiga suu magusaks.
2020. aasta kevadel kuulutas Rapla Keskraamatukogu välja kolmandat korda maakondliku illustratsioonide konkursi „Mina näen nii”. Noortel kunstnikel oli võimalus luua illustratsioone loodusteemalistele luuletustele.
Kuna kevadel pandi koolid olude sunnil kinni ja suur osa elust seiskus, lükkus ka konkurss edasi sügisesse.
1. novembriks oli meile laekunud üle maakonna 63 tööd. Osalejad olid vanuses 10-14 aastat. Žürii valis näitusele nendest 30 parimat.
26. novembril toimus Rapla Keskraamatukogu saalis töötuba koos kirjanik/kunstnik Kerttu Soansiga. Töötoas osalesid Rapla valla lapsed, kelle tööd said näitusele.
Kohtumine oli väga sisukas ja inspireeriv. Noored said teadmisi illustratsiooni olemusest. Koos joonistati puud, et saada teada huvitavaid fakte iseenda kohta. Töötoa käigus joonistati illustratsioone kahele erinevale tekstile, mida Kerttu Soans ette luges ja pärast illustratsioone ka tagasisidestas. Ühe teksti pildid sai kunstnik kaasa, et viia need kirjanikule, kes selle teksti kirjutas. Kerttu Soans andis igale osalejale tagasisidet ka näitusel oleva töö kohta.
Järgmised töötoad toimuvad detsembris Märjamaa ja Kehtna valdade parimatele illustraatoritele ja jaanuaris on töötuba Kohila valla parimatele.
Maakonna parimate tööde näitus oli Rapla Keskraamatukogu saalis üleval terve novembri. Detsembris saab seda näitust vaadata juba Märjamaa raamatukogus. Uuel aastal Kehtna, Järvakandi ja Kohila raamatukogudes.
Rapla valla parimad olid kõik Rapla Vesiroosi Koolist:
Helerin Peterson, Eva Leesment, Kirke Teder, Lisann Luhtoja, Krete Liisa Aasamaa, Mona Maria Hannus, Helen Forsel, Jasmin Mitev.
Projekti toetas Eesti Rahvakultuuri Keskus regionaalse kultuuritegevuse toetuse meetmest ja Raplamaa Omavalitsuste Arengufondi toetusest.
