Whitsunday Regional Libraries will provide an exciting range of free activities for children during the December / January school holiday period.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that in December, all libraries will offer a variety of Christmas themed art & craft sessions and help children get into the spirit of the season!
“It’s a great time of year for kids and our libraries provide the perfect environment for them to use their creativity to make and take home decorations, gifts and goodies,” Cr Willcox said.
Barrel of Monkeys Entertainment & Creative Workshopping presenter Anji Young will help keep the kids entertained with a Heroes & Villains party at Cannonvale Library in December, and a selection of creative writing, storytelling, slam poetry, and performing and visual arts workshops at Bowen and Collinsville in January.
Mayor Willcox said that a wide range of fun activities will run throughout January but places are limited for most activities so interested parents and children should ring their local library and book in early.
These activities include heroes & villains face painting, community art wall, SandArt and Medieval themed craft. Children more interested in techno fun should head to Bowen Library for their robotics Techcamp session, or Collinsville for Sensing STEAM - a half day of arts, craft creations and science experiments.
Places are limited for most activities, and age limits may apply. Not all activities will be available at all centres.
Parents are also reminded that children under 8 years must be accompanied and supervised by an adult when visiting the libraries.
Please check the Council website www.whitsundayrc.qld.gov.au or your local branch library for further information or to make a booking.
