Preserves tips to get out of a jam

As part of the Town�s regular library Buzz Week activities, the Perth Royal Show exhibitor and regular preserves prize-winner will take workshop participants through her jam-making rituals culminating in an all-important jam tasting.

Continuing until May 30, Buzz Week coincides with National Families Week and will include a variety of free or low-cost seminars and fun activities to suit all local families, showing that libraries are no longer just about books.

Events include a seminar about childhood allergies by Telethon Kids Institute researcher, author and paediatrician Susan Prescott, a talk by Perth author Linda Bettenay, a teddy bears� picnic, a Kensington police home security talk and a dancing with daddy session.

Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the week was �literally jam-packed� with information sessions.
