What's on for kids at the library

Fun and interesting activities for babies, toddlers, children and teens are available at the libraries. These are not always book related; the activities aim to provide children with the opportunity to experience new things, learn something, be creative, and have fun. Some activities run during school holidays, others during school term.

Parents please note that children under 6 years old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.

Children between 6 and 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult, or older sibling (13 years and over).
