Family Build-a-Fort Night Event – Registrations now closed

Date: Friday 8 June
Time: 6:30 – 8:00pm
Registrations required!

Do you like reading stories by torchlight under your blankets? Do you like building blanket forts around the house? Then join us for an evening of stories and fun at the Library!

We will start our evening off with a selection of stories, and once the library closes you will be let loose to rearrange the furniture and build the most amazing blanket fort you can! You’d better be quick though as we will be turning off the lights to make sure your reading by torchlight experience is the best we can offer.

You will need to come prepared for this night of building fun with a torch (or two) and some blankets to make your fort with. We will provide everything else. If you are interested in attending this event, then register now!

A Christmas Story Time with Cris

Looking for a time out? Tired of the Christmas chaos? Need some time to rejuvenate your Christmas spirit? Well, we’ve got just the thing for you and your family. Come out of the shopping haze and bring your listening ears and singing voices to the Library and join us with some fun and festive Christmas stories on the 22nd of December at 11:00 am.

All ages are welcomed and participation will be encouraged. New stories, classic stories, funny stories and even a little sing along too.

Christmas is a magical time of year, and together we will create all the Christmas magic we can muster.

Warm up your voices, put on your Santa hats, reindeer horns, red noses and anything festive as we get ready for the big day together.

Cris is looking forward to seeing all your beautiful faces as our Christmas spirits are raised by lunchtime.
