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. If you would like to receive information about library events and services by email you can sign up for the e-newsletter, or like us on Facebook.

Visitors to the City’s libraries will be required to follow contract tracing protocol as specified by the WA Health Department. Public health measures such as the use of hand sanitiser and complying with reduced event capacities for social distancing must be followed by all participants. Please do not visit a library if you are unwell, have recently been overseas, or have been in close contact with someone confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19.

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).
