WARRAGUL // KIDS and parents came together at the Warragul Library earlier this month to start assembling a paper chain 250 metres long.

Children from the local Girl Guides, Warragul Specialist School, Warragul Community Kindergarten, a child care centre, and the general public assembled lengths of chain to be hung in the library for Christmas.
Twelve children and nine adults helped link the chain sections together on Friday.
A library spokesperson said the total chain length was around 250 metres. For comparison, Warragul’s Mason Street is about 460 metres in length.
Putting the chain together was about more than the fun though. The spokesperson said putting the chain together was a “great way to get the community groups we work with together at one time.”
You can see the chain at the Warragul Library, suspended from the roof in its entirety.
