FORGET the books, it will all be about craft this month when Gladstone region libraries spring into their School Holiday Craft Program.

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.

Session times are as follows:

Gladstone City Library on Tuesday, September 21 and September 28 from 9.30am to 11.30am; Boyne Island Library on Thursday, September 23 and September 30 from 10am to 11am and from 3pm to 4pm; Calliope Library on Wednesday, September 22 and September 29 from 10am; and Miriam Vale Library on Tuesday, September 21 and September 28 from 10am to 12pm.

Likewise, Agnes Water Library on Wednesday, September 22 and September 29 from 10am to 11am and Mt Larcom Library on Thursday, September 23 and September 30 from 10am to 11am.
