There are many exciting activities taking place at our local libraries this holiday, ranging from sports activities to life skills programmes. Children will be provided with fun educational activities that develop their skills and interests.

Sharing a love for books at our libraries

As parents, you can play a key role in building the reading and writing skills of your children by encouraging them to read during school holidays and after school hours. Most local libraries stock the latest and most sought-after books, DVDs and CDs. Check in at your local library and connect with the world.  

The aim of all of these programmes and activities are to positively engage, entertain and safeguard our youth during school holidays when they’re at greater risk for exposure to peer pressure, substance abuse, drugs, and violence.

We encourage all children to attend some of the holiday programmes at their local library, to learn and be active in a safe environment.You can contact your local library for more information about these holiday programmes.
