Each of the six regional libraries will be doing their bit to keep the kids entertained during the September school holidays with a myriad of free craft activities planned.

A regular attraction hosted each school holidays, the craft activities are open to primary school aged children who love nothing better than cutting, colouring, creating and crafting.

With the theme of “Beautiful House and Gardens”, children and their carers are invited to visit their local library and participate in a range of activities from making sun catchers, rock paper weights and painted butterflies to photo frames and edible tea cups.
