April Calendar 2018!

Think you know libraries? Think again.

It’s that time again!

School holidays are here and our APRIL calendar has all you need to keep the kids busy.

Laser tag is back! Get excited because we are moving out of the library this month and converting Watson Reserve into a battle field for an afternoon of laser tag fun.

Our calendar is packed full of fun and exciting things to do with bubble soccer, circus skills, art, craft and gardening just to name a few.

We also have the Better Beginning Book Cubby visiting from the State Library all this month!

The Book Cubby is an interactive exhibition of books written and/or illustrated by children and communities within Australia and around the world.

And did we mention our Have a Go series is continuing with Taekwondo: Self Defense?

Join Master Justin as he teaches you how to make yourself less of a target and basic self-defense skills influenced by the Korean martial art Taekwondo.

This workshop is a great opportunity to try something new while having some fun.

Don’t forget… all our April Calendar of Activities and workshops are FREE but places are limited so BOOK NOW!

Films at the Library – Movie Change

Just letting you know we’ve had to change the film we were planning to screen on March 27 due to restrictions around its classification.

10 Things I HATE About You will now REPLACE Pitch Perfect.

That Sugar Film will still screen on Tuesday, March 13.

Apologies for the confusion folks!
