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 on Pratt Road, Eaton into a battlefield 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 Beginnings 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 Defence?

Join Master Justin as he teaches you how to make yourself less of a target and basic self-defence 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!

Stocked with books created by children and communities within Australia and around the world, the Book Cubby travels throughout metro and regional WA.

So come visit the Book Cubby this April!

Eaton: 3rd – 20th April

Better Beginnings: Books-to-Go

Using one piece of paper and a few simple folds you can create an 8 page book without having to stick or staple.

Every child can be an author and can write and illustrate their own story.

The books are published on the spot using a colour photocopier and the author gets to keep the original book.

When: Tuesday 3rd and 10th April
