School holidays at the library

School holidays are a little different without physical programs or events at the library.

We are providing take home activity packs that include colouring in and word puzzles and have some online suggestions below to help keep everyone entertained!

Borrowing

Borrow specific titles by reserving them on the online library catalogue or let us know what you like to read on this form and we'll hand pick some books and notify you when they're ready to collect.
We have a huge range of books and audio books available digitally through multiple platforms.
For more information head to the e-library

Not sure what to read? Head to the Better Reading and Australia Reads websites for recomendations or the Kids ask podcast where children's author Grace Lin and a guest author answer questions from kids.
